@singam – Great job DRDO on this achievement. I know you'll get alot of flak, but where appreciation is due it must be given generously.

Good job and all the best for 2015.

this is one of the best photographs the ac looks big ,massive the reason why the engines lack power and of course we must be hiding something about its specifications

Great to see this new energy in getting this over the line ! Keep up the momentum with this and into the MK-II project. AMCA seems to be getting a kick in the crotch from the new Defence Minister as well …. a good kick a day keeps the babus awake and performing their best. Just keep kicking Mr. Parrikar !!!

It is ridiculous to delay the FOC for these frivolous tests especially when there is a dire need to get the aircraft inducted in large numbers. Anyway congratulations for coming out with flying colours!!

Kudos to the team! Well done! Let's hope HAL's proposal to beef up production to 16 units per year is approved fast!

Thank you US for GE 404, 414 engines for LCA without which Indians could have not done it.

Kaveri is another failure from DRDO …….

Thank you IAS officers (Kale Angrez) in Defense ministry for preferring GE's help and accepting support from US …. more Harvard admissions for IAS/IFS/IPS officers

It is very funny when some people shows skepticism to projects like Space, Marut and Tejas. They might not be as promising as other readily available foreign techs; but they do not realize that that this projects are in Indian extreme engineering areas equivalent to invention of zero into mathematics. DRDO should engage more private players as they do in space program. HAL should be partner in gearbox in kavery engine (they make helicopter engines– right?), Kavery's TBO should be dropped to 80-100 hours (30-40 shorties) and try to increse it gradually that will boost confident of scientist working on… Read more »

@Anon 11:22 Wasn't US GE 414 / 404 on the F-18 that was a part of MMRCA and was unsuccessful in Cold start or was it successful? Please Give Credit where it is supposed to be given, of course I am not a fan of DRDO or ADA until they deliver truly world class jets for our Country

Ok Give the credit, now do not ask how come JAXPA with much less than 1 decade and very less budget achived more than isro with more than 1 billion dollor of budget and 5 decades of Govt support Someone should ask questions when waste of money happens, how come we are loosing battles, lands and resources when these agencies are unable to equip our defence forces on time Look what happened IOCL has to flee from vietnam when China claims the oil …….. ?? no body ready to ask uncomfortable questions to these scientist and beuocrats …..

Folks , Would like to go on a tangent here but kindly bear. With Tejas being still under testing and Rafale no where in sight , it appears to be a deep seated conspiracy to surreptitiously wipe out the IAF from playing any serious role in future wars. I hope I am wrong . I am not able to fathom why can we not consider additional sqds. of Mig 29M / Gripen as an immediate interim measure . If even that is not kosher , I have a suggestion . We are already manufacturing the Hawk trainer . Why not… Read more »

In reply to the earlier anon , I would like to say that we must have the Tejas as our new Mig 21 ( the backbone of the airforce ) . Intermediate purchases do not matter as they do not deflect you from your goals. I would prefer Mig 29M as we have already trained on them and they are the only fighter which can match the solah on equal terms.
