    The tests are going slower than I thought considering that we'd submitted the engines to Gromov Institute almost 1 and a half years back. If what this article says is true, then I think we need to forget Kaveris for Tejas (even MK-2s) and rather tweak its thrust to 100KN for MCA at least in time so that we've a working engine by the time MCA becomes a tangible figure.
