    AFAIK no NLCA is on manufacturing ramp, but It might start by end of this month. Rest will be updated later.
    Prototype building will not affect the serial production in any manner. This year HAL already delivered 3 units of LCA and HAL will surely deliver 5 more units,if they continue moving with present speed but if they try to slightly enhance, they can deliver 6 or max 7 units by end of 2017.

    Another UPDATE for NLCA

    We continue to LCA Navy project. Our share of the budget for LCA was 40%, over INR 600 crores. Paying 40% for LCA Mk2, over INR 300 crores. I need a Dec based fighter by 2020. LCA Navy is nowhere on the horizon. It is underpowered. - Admiral Lanba

    As and when DRDO and ADA develop a deck based fighter we are happy to induct it. - Admiral Lanba

    Don't foresee budget problems with 57 carrier borne fighters. We have fixed form and fit of IAC2, conventionally powered, CATOBAR, through deck carrier. - Admiral Lanba

    This is very true for NLCA,it need much more powerful engine unlike airforce version.ADA already announced that NLCA mk1 is a pure TD while NLCA mk2 is something they looking forward for.
