    I was watching the rafale asssembly, they assemble it manually too without robots. But they have assisting equipments like a lift crane to move around the assembled pieces, custom equipments etc.

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    The rear fuselage is built by Alpha tocol, hal assembles it. It's possible some undulations due to some modifications or retrofitting or even initial fitment issues being done but it does not mean that it's an underlying quality assurance issue with all the manufactured aircrafts. So I don't...

    FOC Tejas has pretty good build quality. It's not a systemic issue with each and every aircraft unlike the jf17 which has door hinges. That's more of a problem that they should worry about.

    HAL like any other PSU has large land area with huge campuses with employee quarters, hospitals, school etc. They don't utilize their assets well and dont cut expenditure on non-essential stuff, rather they cant, as it's all unionized. I am not even talking of the work culture and competence but...

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    HAL said figure of 16/yr is decided to keep running the production line long enough. IAF order is also not very big, so this 16/yr rate would help keep line active. There is still time before mk1A manufacturing starts, so in the interim if they can gather orders they can increase the assembly...

    LCA TEJAS MK1 & MK1A: News and Discussion

    We can't ignore exports, it is imperative to market these weapons and get a foot in the military market door. It will open up a lot more opportunities for other equipments if executed well. We will keep on importing jets till the time we can buy only a single jet for the whole air force budget...

    I think HAL chief said that it can increased in case of export orders. IAF would benefit also with increased rate. However unless IAF operates good number of them, it will difficult to convince other nations. Our defense attaches will have to play a major role here.
