So we can expect LCA Tejas to get FOC by December 2014. Even now it IAF has a lot of requirement for LCA Tejas. Except SU30MKI everything needs to be replaced in IAF. RAFALE still didn't find its way, PAK-FA getting delayed.
LCA Tejas will still prove its worthy, if there are no further delays. Also what happened to
Arjun MK2 MBT SIr? ni update for along time?

We keep hearing about IOC1,IOC2 &FOC. Can someone, in the know, outline what exactly is needed for each of them, like a check list?
I'm completely baffled as to why this is taking long, as India do manufacture, under licence, fighter aircraft and surely the needed technology should be available in the country!!!

I don't know what unguided and guided bomb — as you say: due for integration at FOC — you are talking about when world saw Tejas dropping LGB in iron fist video and unguided 500 Kg bomb in following video…

Some pertinent questions to the IAF: 1) Are the radomes of the MiG fighters in the IAF completely free from electromagnetic interferences ? Are they also water-tight ? 2) Do all MiGs perfectly pass all the wake penetration challenges thrown at them ? Does any MiG emerge fully unscathed after being subjected to a wake flow ? 3) Do the "flying-coffins", i.e the MiG-21s meet EACH & EVERY minutest requirement that the IAF demands of a fighter jet of its size ? If the answers to any one of the above questions is NO, then the IAF is doing a… Read more »

Look at the American F-35 program, that too has had more than it's share of issues…in fact it has been one of the biggest money pits in history for the US military. This for a country that is #1 in defence. We have nothing in comparison. Things like this will take time. Mistakes upon mistakes will happen. That is how expertees are built up. It is better to accept that the LCA program actually began in the mid-late-90's since that is when it was properly funded. You are misinforming people by saying it is 30 years old. Don't just create… Read more »

I am supporting Avinash chander, I is shame to developers of LCA, that they take such a long time making such a plane. what would they do if they are asked to make any state of the art plane competing Russian or western plane like su-30 or mig 35 or eurofighter typhoon or F/A 18….?. all govt employers are good to take of themselvs but not about the task they have been assigned to.

The US president changes but their Pak policy never changes. Similarly the the DRDO chief changes but the tejas fate never changes.

Shiv, one will have to understand why Anthony is now setting deadlines for ADA/HAL to deliver Tejas….Because it is clear as broad daylight that he will not be in office post April 2014 and so will Congress….DRDO/HAL knows that and will play safe…Once NDA comes to power, they will ask Modi to set the deadline to December 2024…..

How I wish Anthony had set those deadlines in the last 9 years of UPA and not now….

believe me I just love this bird (LCA), first heard about this when I was a kid and have followed its development since. Now, in my middle ages I think we are doing a lot of injustice to this project, first someone or some people are there in our country who dont want the LCA (I dont call this Tejas, you want your fighters to be stealthy and not full of radiance) to be anywhere near successful they want to make moolah out of foreign aircraft deals. Second the Americans have always tried secretly that LCA is never a grand… Read more »
