    hopefully after getting the experience the next big projects like amca would take much less time.

    @satbir: Javelin is a man portable missile. Nag ATGM doesn't have a man portable version yet, hence the Javelin procurement.

    On topic: Perhaps the archive will contain hints as to what the Mark II version might look like?

    Cheers to Tejas.

    I think Tejas Mk2 will have similar but elongated and widened shape to have all the capacities enhanced in due proportions.

    Why would they put canards on a 1990 scale model, remove it from the mark 1, only to put it back on mark 2?

    That is not a canard, but the wing surface above the air intakes. That wing surface also plays a role in cutting out vortexes from the air intake.

    That is what is sought to be displayed here in this model. This appears to be a wind tunnel model.

    There was a canard version of the LCA that was tested in a wind tunnel, but that design was given up in favour of the present one. The current LCA configuration arose after getting the best possible combination of light weight, agile fighter.

    As successful as the LCA?

    Don't you want India to be able to produce world class fighters?
