@Kuntal

MWF picture can you edit it to carry only CCM and bvr

in central fuselage add one drop tank and either side add sfdr bvr astra mk3 ( drop LDP )

Dual racks astra mk1 ( both side )
Again another dual rack astra MK2 ( both side

Wing tip CCM both side

Call it interception / air defence configuration

And don't forget to label the missiles
This is a very good idea! From DDR video it looked switching weapons/tank/pod to be a matter of few clicks. Is that correct?

In that case seperate renders in different configurations can be made.
CAP: CCM-2×CCM-2×BVR-EFT-BVR-EFT-(same)
CAS: CCM-CCM-LGB-*tandem*HSLDbomb-LGB-EFT-LDP-(same)
Standoff: CCM-BVR-Rudra3-BrahmosNG-BVR-EFT-BVR-(same)
Strike: CCM-BVR-LGB-EFT-LGB-EFT-LDP-(same)
Anti-Airfield: CCM-2×BVR-LGB-EFT-LGB-*tandem*4×SAAW-LDP-(same)
SEAD: CCM-BVR-2×NGARM-GlideBomb-BVR-EFT-BVR-(same)

What do you think?... Doable?

I already have thought of making renders of different configuration -

A2G, AIR DOMINANCE, CAP, Long range strike missions, Anti Ship configuration etc.

Great!

Basically this, but better (CAP/Air-dominance config. basically same & MWF won't do maritime strike).

Man, I really hope that your renders end up in Aero India 2021 posters... I reeeaaaaally do. :hail:

I have a question, as we all know that MWF will be larger then Tejas mark 1 or 1A then cannot we use GE 110 or P&W F100?

GE 110 or P&W F100?

Look at for example the thrust to weight ratio-

70's tech F-100 - 7.4 F-15/E, F-16
80's tech F-110 - 7.9 F-14/15E/16
90's tech F-414 - 9 SH, Gripen E/F and Tejas Mk 2

F-414 has FADEC which the other two don't, it is the smallest, lightest, newest among these - that's why it is the engine of choice for so many contemporary fighters. For its size, only the EJ200 comes close in performance.

From IDRW article based on AK's interview:
  • Nose probe on radome, which is the pitot tube for measuring airspeed & altitude (by pressure) being moved to sides.
  • Retractable refueling-probe confirmed.
  • Gonna have a "Beast mode" with 8 BVRs in 6 pylons (2 dual-racked) on both wings +CCMs. @Kuntal

Those are too large & even heavier.

Infact , from the specification what we have seen, MWF will use GE 414 EPE only. Just a 58 KN dry thrust weight engine can not carry 17.5 Ton MTOW. Theoretically, 1 70 KN dry thrust is required. So it will atleast be an engine with 64 KN dry so naturally, its afterburner thrust shall be in the range of 110 KN if you consider 160% rise in after burner thrust per KN increase in dry thrust.

Gripen E has maximum take of weight of 16500 kg with 8000 kg empty weight and 5300 weapon load.
With same weapon load MWF will have 16300 kg weight. For this weapon load this engine works but for full weapon load of 6500 kg we need higher thrust engine.

I am not talking about weapon load all, I am talking about MTOW. for MWF, it is designed for 17.5 ton. 58 KN GE 414 can support sucg high MTOW. That is why I say that it will be GE 414 EPE with 20% higher power.
