    Since Honeywell engine is the only option now, so notwithstanding the single vendor tender situation, the purchaser shall proceed firmly.

    I feel this would be a smart decision. The same engine can be tried on IJT without afterburner and that would make IJT a great trainer.I still believe the mirage upgrade at 41 million a piece is a sheer waste of money and time would tell that at same price a better performing LCA MK2 with a total life span of 20-25 years would be achieved. MiG 29 upgrade is worthwhile and cost effective . I feel lets talk to Israel if they can achieve Mirage upgrade in 10 million then it is worth it or just concentrate of developing the LCA and start a well organized assembly line so that well managed computerized assembly line can be started as quickly as possible and mass production of LCA can begin. I cannot justify the price of LCA paid just for a very old plane with questionable life span.

    Anything is better than nothing. But as someone pointed out, if the cost is the same as buying a new plane there is no sense in upgrading a 40-year old design like the Jaguar no matter how good the utility.

    Then again, what are the alternatives? Dedicated strike aircraft are rare on the market these days, its Multi-Role all the way. Perhaps just multiply the MMRCA to replace ALL of our existing Gen 3 and Gen 4 jets and standardize to a LCA, MMRCA, FGFA fleet by 2025. Hmm that might work…

    Dump Jaguar re-engine. just buy 40 F-16I with conformal tanks. and some Bunker buster missiles and PGMS from US. It would be far more powerful offensive platform for India.

    Either They should get Rolls royce Engine as they are OEM even its thrust is less. or they should buy US made F-16I with avionics for ground attack. which by the way already exists.

    Rolls royce Adour MK-821 has better throttle response and less engine wear and tear than F-125
