    What will be the changes in Mk1A except electronics? there are multiple figures of weight reduction are floating. Bring it down to 6 ton and it will kick the @$$ of anything.

    Wing which is not a perfect triangle but crancked in its upper part.Look at Tejas' wing. Look at saab wiggen wing.

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    Tejas MK1 has intake and aerodynamic issues. It will be solves to some extent in Mk1A. Had Tejas been one meter long, it would have been a better plane. Short length restricts Tejas' performance by not very good compliance with area ruling. Intake redesign will improve power by 3%. I hope that a...

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    Gripen is undoubtedly a great plane but the quesation here is that when Tejas has similar capabilities of Gripen C/D and MWF has similar capabilities of Gripen E, why would India buy it?

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    Our defence stuff development is slow but they have always delivered better than what was promised. Take for example Tejas. It was originally conceived as a point defence fighter. However, ultimately we made it a multirole fighter with active electronics scan array radar, EW suits, state of...

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    In my opinion, canopy reshaping cannot improve area ruling. It can only better the aerodynamics by reducing drag. To improve area ruling , you need to increase the length of the Tejas so that cross-section expansion along the length can be reduced and area ruling can be bettered.

    This was exactly the reason why Paython 5 was initially rejected for Tejas. Now it is tested. So hopefully, the problems are sorted out.

    But Mig 21 is. We can send Mig 21 against F16 and J17 but LCA is not mature enough. :):):):):):):)

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    In my opinion, Aerodynamics improvements (Canopy, Rare part of Fuselage, Payloan Redesign) ,Air intake improvement, Weight reduction, RCS reduction holds the key. They will determine whether Tejas will be a good fighter or a very good fighter. With the Arrival of Astra Mk2, New GAN based AESA...

    Elanorate this. The modified canopy design is different from what was conceived in aerodynamic study.

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    If its fuselage is prolonged for half of meter and weight is reduced to 6100 kg along with other aerodynamic improvements, It can be a very very lethal weapon. The imitial ddsign change of Mk2 were very impressive. Let us see how Tejas Mk1A turns out to be? Whether best in class or among the...

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    Infact, the RCS of both planes can not be compared. Sukhoi's RCS can not be reduced bellow 3 Sq meter even with best efforts. Tejas in its MK1A avatar will have 0.1 to 0.2 Sq meter of RCS against 0.5 Sq mater of Tejas Mk1. Tejas Mk1A will be a great plane in every aspects except in area of...

    Sukhois, inspite of being great fighters are out dated. Therefore, the super sukhoi update is urgent need. Reduce RCS by applying Ram paints and air intake redesign will reduce RCS, Put a mammoth AESA radar of 400 KM+ range into its big nosecone, Put BVR with at least meteor equivalent range...
