    As per latest IAF’s Force level projections , Indian air force is trying to have 42 operational fighter squadrons by 2022 , up from current level of 32 squadrons .

    IAF will be able to induct full 270 + Sukhoi Su 30MKI which will get its due Mid-life upgrade program, which will include major changes to it avionics package and RCS reduction to the airframe , further 40 MKI aircraft’s will be made capable enough to carry air launched BrahMos along with DRDO developed Long-Range Cruise Missile (LRCM) .

    IAF will also induct 126 M-MRCAs in this period, results of which will announced by march 2011 and first aircraft will be delivered to India by 2014 period . while 40 Tejas MK-1 will join IAF by 2016 time frame and further 70 to 80 Tejas MK-2 by 2022 .

    FGFA will be inducted into IAF by 2020 and IAF will have small batch (20 nos ) of 5th gen aircraft by 2022 , Jaguar fleet along with Mirage -2000 and Mid-29 will have gone through Major up-gradation in avionics and engine change .

    Engine change will be only done on Jaguars and Mig-29SMT , while IAF plans to put more then half of its current Mig-27 fleet in reserved / storage , while a small fleet of upgraded Mig-27 will be operational even at this period .

    AMCA will be replacing Jaguars and Mig-27 by 2025 period onwards when the AMCA will be in full Production , if the whole project stays in course , as per sources M-MRCA will have clause of purchase of additional aircraft if Tejas MK-2 is delayed due to any reason .

    200 LCA when IAF has only ordered 40? Not likely
    200 FGFA by 2020... that is a dream

    More like 80-120 LCA depending on how smooth things go.
    More like 0 FGFA as 2020 is too early as much as Russia has left to do.

    Even if a winner is selected for MRCA next year, it will be 2015 before the first arrive and later before India production line is going. More like 60-70 MRCA.

    AMCA won't even exist by 2020.

    There is a possibility Russia is working on a Growler version of the Su-30MKI and Su-34. Then we may see squadrons of EW MKI in the list which is capable of stand off jamming. That would be a huge capability boost.

    As of now nothing about SAP 14 is known except that it is a heavy weight high powered jammer.

    I think it's the purpouse of developing AMCA is to replace actuel Jaguar and Mig27.

    Did anyone request the thread starter the source of the post? Are we not losing out on authenticated posts? Just a thought.

    see the change in no's between your 1st and second post

    that total will give u(according to ur second post)

    that total of lca will go up to 110-120 -2022
    and 20 no of 5gen fighter 2020
    but ur first post reflects different no's
    so why is this difference?

    by seeing this number i remember some of them are from Wikipedia the only mistake in the post is

    IAF 2020 future aircrafts
    that should be IAf future aircrafts (not 2020-timeline)

    I don't get this attitude. The original poster put up what he thought was their opinion or guesstimate from wiki ( which I may add many of you use as a source). Instead of putting up your own version or table , you some of you guys come in and yell at the guy? was sup with that- did you folks get up on the wrong side of the bed. was the poster trying to intentionally show malice or trying to irate some of you guys sensitivities? now I don't know the posters history, but if it is not one of a troll , then why trip out out homies?

    /\/\/\ Wikipedia is not an authentic source. If someone quotes from wiki, then you need to point it out, then and there and ofcourse leave it to the Mods.

    I wonder if MMRCA deal will ever happen. Just imagine this- MMRCA deal was requested by IAF in 2001. Its almost 10 years now and till date we have no results. Your rosy picture for 2020 is a dream. I would be happy even if half of it comes through.
