    If we have to quote Adm Lanba in recent interview, here is something more.

    http://www.hindustantimes.com/india-news/great-progress-made-in-coastal-security-post-26-11-terror-attack-says-navy-chief/story-EKRxuE44kyBLJgYDk39itN.html

    So as per this statement, he too said what we are already saying all this time. Its not MkI which IN is interested in, but they are much more vested in MkII version.

    The moment Parrikar leaves, Navy chief comes in and kicks Tejas out. Now that the Navy has rejected it, 24 planes later the IAF will reject it reason being the seats are not comfy.

    I am telling you AMCA will be a failure too, they will find a miniscule fault and make it a major issue out of it.

    It said nothing about in article Published on: Mar 29, 2017

    Read more at: http://english.mathrubhumi.com/news...aji-aeronautical-development-agency-1.1832969
    :

    1. Test pilots testimony with regards to issues, Serious vibrations issues.
    2. Having serious issues which threaten project in any manner.
    3. Having serious rectifying issues.
    4. NP1 has set of deadline with respect to arrested recovery tests set by IN.

    It said rather about positive signs in project, Read more here : http://english.mathrubhumi.com/news...aji-aeronautical-development-agency-1.1832969

    ===============

    Further article on 8th March 2017, This is what CD Balaji has to speak about NLCA MK1 :

    More recent design of Naval LCA Mark 2. As you can see, changes done to the frame. Mark 2 is intended to be the final operational model. The next two NPs are going to be mark 2s.

    My question why can't they select F414 EPE engines for extra thrust as extra thrust only needed by navy not airforce.They seems preety happy with Mk1 and Mk 1 a while Mk2 is cherry on cake.

    Apart from fuselage, the wings to seem to have undergone monumental change to assist lift off. The real challenge would be to strengthen under carriage to assist arrested recovery without compromising on the overall weight.

    SAAB OFFERS WORLD CLASS SENSOR PACKAGE FOR INDIAN TEJAS LCA

    Defence and security company Saab offers a fighter sensor package for the Indian Tejas LCA Mk1A fighter aircraft. The package consist of a state-of-the-art Saab AESA fighter radar closely integrated with a compact electronic warfare suite using Gallium Nitride based AESA technology.

    Saab, in partnership with Indian industry, offers a solution that will bring the required Airborne Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) Fighter radar and Electronic warfare capability to India and the Indian Air Force. Thanks to our extensive technology development Saab can offer the latest technology, on time for the LCA Mk 1A needs, at low risk.

    The AESA fighter radar is developed by Saab with antenna technology based on the latest technologies using Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicone Carbide (SiC) substrates in combination with the latest generation of exciter/receiver and processor technology, giving optimum installed performance in a dense signal environment.

    The radar has a complete mode suite which includes air-to-air, air-to-ground and air-to-sea capabilities. A built-in memory provides a tool to record a large amount of data from performed flights. Integration in the LCA Mk1A fighter aircraft is enabled by the limited space, power and cooling required.

    The EW suite consists of sensors and transmitters developed by Saab and is a highly capable and extremely compact solution that provides essential situational awareness and self-protection. The heart of the suite is an alectronic warfare receiver which is connected to a front end receiver and fin tip antennas inside the aircraft. Included is also an external AESA jammer pod.

    The radar warning system is based on ultra-wideband digital receivers and has very high probability of intercept, very good sensitivity and very high selectivity for handling the complex signal environment of today.

    The AESA jammer pod is small in size, low on weight and drag. Self-protection is based on Wideband Digital RF Memory (DRFM) that provides advanced jamming techniques and arbitrary combination of jamming waveforms. Transmission is performed by using GaN-based AESA:s. The EW suite also includes ground support systems and recording capability for advanced mission planning and post flight analysis.

    Saab’s solutions are based on the latest state-of-the-art technologies and COTS (commercial-off-the-shelf) available. The AESA fighter radar and electronic warfare units have no ITAR-restricted (Internationally Traffic in Arms Regulations) components, due to the high degree of Saab in-house developed and manufactured building blocks. Using contemporary technology provides the adaptability and growth potential needed to stay ahead. Technologies are re-used between variants and platforms in order to minimize Life Cycle Cost (LCC).

    “In our partnership, the transfer of technology will secure an indigenous Indian capability for series production, maintenance, repair and overhaul capability. Testing and development of the fighter sensor package will have synergies with the systems developed for Gripen,” says Anders Carp, head of Saab business area Surveillance.

    Saab has a proven background in tailoring systems to customer needs. This brings extensive experience from having open relations with customers when adapting advanced systems to new platforms.

    “Saab is a world leading company in the sensor area and has equipped some 4500 fighter aircraft with radar and electronic warfare systems. This has given us wide experience of successful sensor system integration, testing, and evaluation of radar and EW systems on fighter aircraft,” says Anders Carp."

    Nice aircraft, too bad it's a direct competitor to the Tejas Mark-2.

    Final Operational Clearance (FOC) of LCA (Navy) MK-II To Be Obtained By 2023
    Saturday, April 08, 2017 by Indiandefense News
    [​IMG]
    NEW DELHI: To a question, Bhamre said it is planned to utilize Light Combat Aircraft Tejas as a flying test bed to design and develop a stealthy unmanned combat aerial vehicle. He said the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd has undertaken a feasibility study to convert Chetak helicopter into an unmanned technology demonstrator.
    The Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) has also planned to develop a futuristic stealth combat drone.
    Defence Minister Arun Jaitley, replying to another query, said the ADA is also developing MK-II version of LCA for the Navy with a higher thrust engine than the one used in MK-I version of Tejas.
    "Final Operational Clearance (FOC) of LCA (Navy) MK-II is likely to be obtained by 2023 for induction in Indian Navy and FoC for Air Force MK-II is likely to be obtained by December 2025," he said.
    Replying to a separate query, Bhamre said Indian Navy has decommissioned 11 ships since January 2015.
    The Minister said no incident of Indian UAV having been shot down by Pakistan has taken place.
    A total of 48 military aircraft and 21 helicopters were lost to crashes since 2011 in which 79 people were killed, the government told Lok Sabha today.
    Replying to a question, Minister of State for Defence Subhash Bhamre said all such incidents and accidents are thoroughly investigated and preventive actions taken based on probe reports.
    "A total of 48 aircraft and 21 helicopters were lost in crashes by the armed forces since 2011. 79 persons were killed in these crashes," he said.

    BREAKING: IDN EXCLUSIVE: DERBY MISSILE TEST FIRED FROM TEJAS
    THURSDAY, MAY 11, 2017 BY INDIANDEFENSE NEWS


    [​IMG]
    The Derby AAM (top) can be integrated onto a variety of fighter aircraft such as TEJAS, F-16, Gripen & Mirage & is capable of engaging aerial threats from short & near-beyond visual range
    Continuing with its successful stride of flight trails with missile tests, ADA's Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) TEJAS achieved a major milestone on Thursday. One of the limited series production (LSP) platforms fired a Beyond Visual Range Air-to-Air Missile (BVRAAM) missile Derby and scored a direct hit, the test was conducted at the Interim Test Range, Balasore.
    According to sources associated with the project, these weapon trials are part of the Final Operational Clearance (FOC) mandate.
    Sources confirmed to IDN that the TEJAS fired the BVRAAM Derby missile on a Ballistic Guided mode.
    The current trials are aimed at validating the accuracy of the missile.
    Apart from Python and Derby, TEJAS has in its weapon menu the Russian-made CCM R-73, and the Israeli laser-guided bombs (LGB) Griffin and the Paveway.
    "It's a great achievement. The next schedule will be decided based on our analysis." an official attached to the weapon trials program said.
