    ASR issued by Indian air force last year , pretty much stressed high on Stealth characters of the aircraft which has lead to considerablechanges in the original design, Air chief also mentioned that Engines , Avionics and designs itself , and the technology partners for the program has not been finalised yet .
    Sources have told idrw.orgthat Tejas MK-II will carry many of the 5 th generation technology; advance variant of this will later find its way into AMCA, first Tejas MK-II aircraft according to sources will be ready by end of 2013 or early 2014 and will have itsfirst flight in end of 2014 .
    Work on Design aspect of Tejas MK-II is complete and F414 - GE -INS6 engine will power the Mk II version, Tejas MK-II is one meter longer then Tejas MK-I , and will have a stretched nose and larger section behind cockpit for incorporating avionics components.

    A brain storming session with fighter enthusiasts by ADL or other organisations is the best move. :p

    Leaving everything with pure governmental scientists have dragged us a long way in many areas.

    Forget about AMCA for sometime. It has a long road to travel.

    What we really need is to get the LCA Mk2 done right this time, without delays and cost escalation. This way we can get the basic technologies for AMCA ready before first flight.
