This new image from the National Aerospace Laboratory (NAL) depicts a so far unknown (PDF – NAL acting director’s annual report) shape configuration of India’s Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA), a step up from this configuration that was revealed in June this year, this configuration put out in February last year and this one the year before in 2010. The most notable change on the new configuration is clearly the Hornet-like leading edge extensions, absent on all of the earlier shape configurations. The June configuration was notable for a fully altered wing planform, which carries forward on this new shape.
