    Congratulations are due, but let's not get ahead of ourselves. This is just the first step of a long process. The Kaveri will require years of flight testing before it is ready for integration with the Tejas. Then there is the matter of testing and certifying it on the Tejas itself.

    And finally, for those dreaming about Tejas mk.2 and AMCA, this is only the 'mk.1' version of Kaveri with 81kN thrust designed for the Tejas mk.1. Developing a mk.2 version will take well beyond 2020.

    In other words, there really isn't much that can be done with this engine now.
