Well it's the never ending usual story from ADA, HAL & GE. Well what happened to HSTDV-2 at TsAGI in Dec 2014 ? HSTDV-2 was supposed to undergo testing in hypersonic wind tunnel at TsAGI. It seems Finance mantri Arun Jaitley & Raksha Mantri Manohar Parrikar came under crumbling pressure from external entity, the so called "XYYYZZ Nation" which ordered them to stop financing the HSTDV-2 project. Obviously "XYYYZZZ Nation" doesn't want INDIA to succeed in Hypersonic vehicle TD. It seems which ever Party comes to power in Delhi, GOI officially remains to be a proxy for some other so… Read more »

It will Fly in 2021 have no doubt on it. Others may say what they want but it will happen.

It should be mistaken for MKI clearance date not MKII.

ADA must go out transparently and aggressively and approach global aerospace companies for consultancy to get the aircraft ready for service. In the past ADA expected that global firms will knock on their doors and fall over each other to participate. ADA must bite the bullet, keep its nationalistic egos aside and move forward without wasting further money of the tax payer.

We need to learn from china. Keep making the LCA & keep improving them on feedback. Let there be upgrades every 3-5 years. Let airforce keep buying 10-12 every year. Keep upgrading the old ones. If we had done this on marut, we never would need to import jaguars & MiG27. Look at where ALH us, so many variants and there is now a more powerful engine ! Now let HAL setup repairs & spares depots in all zones. Improve the availability. Do same with Arjun. Setup repair and spares depot s in the north , west etc.improve availability, study… Read more »

I am willing to put my money on the dates being met by ADA. Looks like the GoI has asked DRDO to give realistic time frame and DRDO have given themselves a comfortable timeframe. I am looking forward to seeing the first timeline being comfortably met by ADA / HAL. The second timeline also is reasonable but IAF in its usual fashion, is likely to come up with fresh requirements towards the end of the project.

India always believe China is 20 years behind in all aspects. However, developing a simple LCA of over 70% foreign components plus foreign technology/supervision, the LCA is still not combat ready. Thus, I wonder why india not turn to Pakistan to procure their fighter planes, which have been muture and in the market for more 10 years. No need to wait till eternity.
