As per the timelines being quoted today, Tejas MK2 is going into production by 2028. Previously the timeline quoted was 2026 (if I remember correctly). That's already a delay of two years.I hope mmrca is,cancelled and mark 2 tejas mwf becomes,reality. by 2030.
I suspect delays,it's complex and unforseen problems,and typical.indian red tape followed by funding issues will delay ioc and foc to 2032 easily .
in which case I feel.iaf will ask for emergency second batch purchase of Rafale in 2026 delivery by 2030 x 40 planes,
MMRCA cancellation would also give a boost to ORCA.
