Blast from the Past: Sukhoi and its offer for MMRCA
With joint development, this IMHO would have given us an light fighter with advanced engine technology, which could have been mass produced along with Tejas. Also, this would have paved the path for the S-56 carrier borne light fighter as well.
Awesome opportunity lost. I guess at that time DRDO was too confident about Kaveri. With this, we could have had engine design and production capability of Saturn AL-31 /AL-41 TVC.
We wouldn't have been able to afford it because it needed development funding. Mirage-2000 was the better option.
Mig-35 was a better option then this, comparatively.
The idea of the MMRCA was to keep Sukhoi out of the deal.
Why the specs in the article and the pic are different?
