    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    Ya, we gained nothing from TOT because if we did then we would have an engine by now from Russian TOTs and so on. All complex and fundamental things like metallurgy and so on are still not mastered on our side. Basic and deep maintenance is probably done by HAL but deep maintenance may have...

    Not sure if its HAL related thing....I am thinking couple of things one being that LCA 1st version has root deficiencies and may not be prudent to order in large numbers and two being that we have difficulties in getting components from overseas and someone pressing their buttons to influence...

    I think we understate our readiness to obfuscate things.....production means stuff is good enough in my opinion and delivery is just a process as that is dependant on basing and other logistics

    Irish are not irish anymore in spirit, bunch of chumps that will jump at orders from EU. Minus England, they will become bitches in no time.....they produce nothing other than tax free heavens. I am talking about NI and Scotts in context vs independent one....but they are the same already.

    How is a cheap interceptor the criteria, doesn't it have to be capable? It is better to not have one vs having an incapable one...its just some bluster from leftists or female vultures in power. I would not read much into it... They would not consider Tejas

    Yes, detectors/sensors are typically maintained lot cooler than ambient temperatures and it is hard to cool the jet engine just with air without carrying extra processing equipment.....it will just minimize somethings and possibly increase material life

    I don't think it will influence to the extent where it can fool the IR detectors....flares are more effective in general

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    I am sure there are lot of issues possibly minor in nature, better to go with slow deployment of first version...I think they are doing it the right way to test it as much as they can
