    Mig 21 being shot and its pilot being captured seems to have become a regular feature of our recent conflicts. No matter how good the LCA may turn out to be, the fact remains that whatever Wing Commander Abhinandan Varthaman is going through is because the LCA wasnt there when it should have been. This is all that matters and all that history will remember. Just fixing the LCA wont suffice, the whole MOD needs to be fixed.

    I have to ask – when will the Kaveri engine perform to IAF’s satisfaction, and be integrated into the Tejas\MWF platform?

    1. We said same thing after Kargil, when Gen V P Malik said we will fight we have.
    20 years later , scene is pathetic,
    IAF has not got its fighters , light helicopters so vital in Himalayas.
    Army is just getting its artillery, its assault rifles are nowhere, arjun still prodding along.
    Indian navy has not gone far its sub acquisition program, no heavy weight torpedos decided for them .
    Do Babus of MoD ever care ? Please Carry an interview with Defence secretary himself.

    2. I love to see Tejas in a fighter role. It still cannot fire a gun, basic requirement of a fighter. So it can be used only in A2G role. Over enemy territory it is sort of defenceless in WVR firefight. When will that happen ? First flight in 2001, that was Long back….

      With 2 X R-73Es with the DASH HMDS to cue them off-bore sight, not sure anybody can claim that the Tejas is “defenceless” in WVR firefight.
