Induction isn't fast. If you buy fighters, it will take some years to deliver and then some years to train and then some more years to institutionalize them with SOP. Why go through that hassle for jets you don't want? We're not in any war right now, Tejas Mk1A/2 and AMCA/TEDBF will come appropriatelyIAF not ordering mk1a, mk2 will go by production by 2027 but obviously it will be delayed by 2yrs.
All I am saying is having a single engine jet will be better than not having any jet.
IAF anyway looks more commited to mrfa than lca program.
