    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    I will beg to differ on that Every missile has a minimum range and a maximum range . And a dual pulse propulsion offers a added flexibility . It has a boost coast boost coast flight mode For minimal range it can just use the 1st pulse ie boost phase only and skip the next coast and the final...

    It's a good option , but thing is exocets in Indian inventory are the submarine launched versions. So it doesn't make sense to induct a new varient , when DRDO air launch sub sonic cruise missile is under development which also comes in a anti ship role. But having said that if any customers...

    One needs a aircraft with which one is most familiar with and easier to implement AI on . It is a test bed for a reason. Tandan seating will be a additional bonus in my opinion during the test cycle . Sitara is yet to be certified and exists in prototypes only When AI is validated , if need...

    The missile on the left side without fins could be a dummy " generic " missile or best guess a dummy ASRAAM . I highly doubt derby design configuration has been changed . No OEM will do that because it is going to be very expensive and quite time consuming . It doesn't make any sense. Nor will...

    The moment a radar guided missile is fired at Dmax , it is a waste. The very reason why it is termed as " mad dog " launch.

    Problem with Russian missiles is serviceability and maintenance . Indian procurement is crap they imported Soviet era missiles from multiple countries in different batches. Hence the imported stocks had lot of problems. Plus no thought was given to invest in supporting the testing , servicing...

    A fighter looking to shoot down another one with WVR or BVR doesn't need to drop tanks . Tanks are rated to their corresponding G's especially supersonic tanks. Considerable maneuvering can be done with supersonic tanks attached, upto the G load to which the tanks and connectors are rated to...
