    I hope the IAF is able to induct this aircraft by 2020 at the very least.

    Anyway in my opinion this baby will be far more superior than the J20 which is a total piece of cr*p.

    The AMCA will only arrive in 2050 unless private firm's get a chance to be involved.

    @anon7:36 Are you trying to manipulate subsequent comments in this post, and make them about China/Pakistan?

    Because the blog post above says *nothing* about China or Pak.

    The first pic looks like it is F-22 Raptor. Look at the two engine exhaust shape.

    yes yes we will put you in those migs then you can save the country ok???
    Stop being so annoyingly pessimistic…. Can't you atleast get your facts right??? The AMCA itself is scheduled to be inducted around 2025 to replace the migs and jags….. so obviously the PAKFA would be in IAF colors much sooner…. besides even if what you say happens….. at least we will have the super su-30, other MKIs, Tejas Mark II, mig-29, mirage 2000V, MMRCA….. Besides if you din't know all the MiG-21s are to be phased out around 2017~2018…..
    @pics….. these look so awesome!!!! oh and btw will the TVC be 3d or 2d or the MKI type???

    @anon 7:36 PM : thankfully not. you seem 2 be of the view that IAF has only Mig 21s in its inventory..please don't forget the mighty Su-30 MKI,Mig 29, Mirage 2000s which also pack a significant punch vis-a-vis China and Pakistan. Besides the PAK-FA, we also have the MMRCA, AMCA programs besides gradually building a credible missile strike force and acquisitions of N-subs. So rest easy, things are gradually looking up now, and aren't so bad..Our "friendly" neighbours also have their own problems- please don't ignore that aspect. 🙂

    Ummm…. not really. The FGFA will be inducted into the IAF by 2017. By then the MMRCA is expected to enter service. We will also be adding a larger number of Su-30MKIs and LCAs… by which time the JF-17s, F-16s and J-10s will be very much outdated.

    @1:58,the JF-17 is a can't have anything else fighter for PAF!It is being touted as the answer for everything by the Pakis.Thye have no choice!The fact is the Jf-17 is an aircraft with not the best of avionics or characteristics.Its adequate but it is no 5th Gen,what to speak of ending up as stealthy as a stealth fighter built from ground up!!!!The Yanks will not give them latest planes anytime soon and the Europeans and anybody else will ask for loads of money for the latest gen of aircraft,which is something that Pakistan does not have.

    By the time this is inducted, the western world will have autonomous UCAVs. While the graphics design is nice, the IAF really faces some serious technological hurdles and is going to lag behind badly. They have been too slow to acquire things, case in point being the MMRCA. Also, I don't see what the love affair with Russia is. They are slow, unreliable and big time extortionists.

    interesting background in the first picture. Why Santa Monica? (is the IAF threatening Los Angeles) They have enough problems. Maybe over India Gate would be nice?

    Yes looks great…. but…

    This thing can fly in 2016, it can fly only if HAL / DRDO / NAL / BEL … and other defense and Government organizations will changes internal structure completely… And have some accountability on DELAY and COST of the project.

    These must defiantly reduce lot of red tapes / hurdles / laziness and should introduce more corporate and professionalism.

    One more thing is HAL in India is working like a business monopoly … India should start one more PSU or private company with the same business intent as HAL. This will introduce competition…

    (example ..

    lockheed martin and Boeing in US
    MIG and Sukhoi bureau in Russia

    Involve private companies … (example as NAL and Mahindra aero are working). Then these type wonders are easily

    PAKFA and LCA looks odd together.

    What is a Indian PAK-FA doing over LA ?? Is the Indian AF giving its PAK-FAs on lease or are we getting involved in some gang war with those pesky Mexicans gangs ?

    Plus, the PAK-FA looks weird and squashed.

    Yes, that's it! Satisfy yourselves with pictures, dreams, and artist renderings only. That's the best India can do, really! Doesn't matter that it doesn't have real balls! Just talk, and cock and bull! Keep this up, and I assure you, you'll have your castle in the sky!
