    Scattered active array technology will be used on mk2..... "Thrust vector" only after Kaveri becomes real.

    Take care of all the modifications suggested by CAEMILAC in the above paper and there will be increase in performance.
    And if Tejas Mk1A's airframe is to be modified then go for cranked wing delta.
    This alone should be able to surpass all the performance metrics for IAF.

    One more Idea to improve mark 1....
    We need to develop a good in house WVR AAM.
    And put Tejas on international market
    Tejas version with current MMR + with options of either Indian or French/Israel AAM's + Kaveri/GE engine
    With weight under 6000Kg, We will have many takers for a product like this which has all Indian subsystems so there is no issue of sanctions at any point of time...
    And we can have Tejas NG with AESA + BVR+ Higher Power engine + Anti Shipping/ Land attack ALCM for advanced markets later on once we take care of IAF.

    That was wayback in time. I mean a tejas kinda aircraft just to see if range can be more in case of swept wings.

    The best way to improve LCA, is to keep it simple and focused light loads and capabilities.

    1) Add the RecceLite pod, to make it useful in reconnaissance roles. Which would make even MK1 more useful.
    2) Add Harpoon on the centerline, for maritime attack roles, similar to Jaguar IM (again possible with MK1).
    3) Add Helina on twin or triple launchers if possible for CAS roles

    Tejas doesn't need to be a high end fighter, but a capable light class fighter!

    If these are all your expectations than you should go through the HF-73 design which had its upper hand on Jaguar

    And for LCA, IAF already reject swept wing design for Delta..

    @TPFscopes, if you have more information on HF-73, kindly open a new thread. I'd like to learn more about it.

    No need to start another thread for HF-73.
    HF-73 was a improved Marut and exactly according to the IAF ASQR for HF-24. It is very similar that LCA mk-2 will provide only what was requested for LCA.
    As said earlier, mk1 is inefficient, mk1a is a compromise but mk2 will be a complete product but most of the guys here have unrealistic expectations with mk-2.

    Hf-73 was scrapped in favour in Jaguar to fulfill IAF requirements on urgent basis and Govt stopped fundings for hf-73 due to which it remains in dark forever..

    Kaveri should be ready by 2019.... at least flight-worthy by 2019
