So basically anything that is currently active including the P&W engine for F-35 is useless for AMCA. Hard to imagine what it would have required had AMCA been an AHCA.
EVEN MKI HAVE 240-250 KN THRUST

so, yes the power req. for the heavy will be even more.

the su57's planned izdeliye 30 (item-30) engine will have thrust of 180kN, as there are 2 of these in it so total of 360kn of thrust.

14 New High Thrust Engine will be used as TD for AMCA Program – Indian Defence Research Wing
DRDO’s GTRE is planning to conclude a deal with either Safran or Rolls-Royce for the development of a new 110kN Class thrust engine that can be used to power India’s AMCA MkII jets that goes into production in 2035 by mid of this year that will be directly under the preview of the PM’s Office and will be taken as a national project for which clearance of the project will likely take place soon.


idrw.org has been told that nearly 8 new engines will be manufactured after inking the deal within three years from the date of agreement that will be used as ground technology demonstrator engines to be used to test the engine in various configurations with or without afterburner section initially after which the project moves to fabrication of 6 more flying technology demonstrator engine that will be used on the Flying Test Bed aircraft prepared for the program.

If IDRW is to be believed...

They don't know yet who the foreign consultant will be, but the project outline is set. & only 3 years for the first 8 engines! Are we that close or is it too ambitious?? It hints that all the v0 parts are already available with DRDO/consultant.

7 years (2029-30) to finish the program and 9 years for first serially produced engines (2031-32)- isn't that late? If AMCA Mk2 has to roll out by 2035 only 3-4 years of engine availability whereas for the simpler Mk2 GE specialists will be down by mid year to help with the integration and the plane will be ready by 2026-7, which means 4-5 years of overlap.

The report also mentions a flying test bed will be prepared for the program which will put 6 such engines through their paces.

As per saurav Jha ,it will take atleast 6 years for a flight worthy prototype to be ready and idrw guys is claiming that 8 prototypes will be ready within just 3 years. Please ask him what maal he is smoking.

This article mentions 7, but that (+2 years for production) is cutting it too fine for AMCA Mk2 2035 deadline. Unless 2035 is when it rolls out, not start of serial production.
