o my god engine is wrong.. it should be 414
2017.wtf itz too late
Let us be thankful that they haven't put the pic of Mirage or Gripen calling it LCA.
For making this Crappy stuff HAL needed this long!
its just an elongated LCA with some claims.
is there any increase in external payload?is there any increase in combat radius?will there be any reduction in take off and landing distance?
If so, what are the new numbers?
Seems like they are going with the old engine itself, forget F414.
2017 is too late,
rumours were that it will be 2015 …
so does the mk2 has frameless canopy, or same conventional one. plus why don't they change the elliptical intake to rectangular one, just like boeing did on super hornet
no problem with airflow and will look better.
What abt avionics? What abt AESA?What abt IRST?wht abt RCS?what abt TVC specifications?
F*ck HAL. Privatize those idiots.
Not just the engine is wrongly mentioned but also the Ext. weapons store – I believe MkII should have 5000 Kg.
very poor presentations….i could have made a better one in seventh standard…now i understand why we couldn't sell more dhruvs….
Another 3 decades for mk2.
(top right) One landing gear missing as well…. wheel standing on its own !!!!
The wing design is also changed I think.
India defense is going through a rough times due to MoD bleak vision, can anyone guarantee the 50 squadron which the country needs by 2025 will be operational.NO???
It's not just engine and payload that are wrong.
Just check the weights given for the Mk1 at the ADA website, and compare with the weights given for the mk2 :
TO-clean : 9,800 kg (Mk2) vs 9,800 kg (Mk1)
Empty : 6,560 kg (Mk2) vs 6,560 kg (Mk1)
External Stores : 3,500 kg (Mk2) vs 3,500 kg (Mk1)
Yet another non-event if the Tejas history…
Very sad indeed…
what do u expect if u reserve jobs to the unmeritorious
Countries like Iran started making stealth fighters and HAL is still hanging on unstable delta design..I personally think HAL team is unknown about the technological advances going in global defence aeronautical industries..i suggest they should start wathching Discovery Science channel than making such unproductive design and wasting country's resources…JAI HIND
LCA Tejas Mark-2 has an upgraded Engine, Avionics, better flight envelope in range of F16 Block 60. This aircraft will have required Omni role to perform both Air-Air & Air-Ground.
Airframe will have composite up to 75? less frontal RCS which means aircraft will be difficult to detect in Air to Air.
