I don't know a project started in 1980's is still not with user (more than 3 decades)

and still main component Engine is not built by India

and Logic given see how much time west took !! (so we can also take 5 decades)

but they do not had facility of importing 60 percent item instead they had to come up with each & every component ……… also they can not afford 8000 scientist like DRDO does ……..

The F-X2 contest was for BRAF but our Defense Ministry had already decide that our country will pay for the development of the Sea Gripen variant for BR Navy and the fast kick-start of the program depends of a viability study of SAAB about the operation of Sea Gripen in our current Carrier São Paulo.But Brazil wants to buy only 36 fighters and make… Read more »

NLCA MK2 has only 5 hardpoints?? 2 on each wing and one underbelly! Well, at least Whitcomb's area rule has been addressed properly so aircraft should go supersonic at sea-level and have much better roll rates, STR-ITR than IAF's MK2 I feel..
