The operating line here is what I underlined and bolded. The statement starts with an assumption and ends with definite timeline and numbers. This is the way we operate...assumptions are accepted as axioms and then the horses run wild with imagination.
I really hope that this statement is based on some solid insider information of new JV concluding this year and work starting in earnest or really started. Statement refers to an almost ready facility which is seems to be the proactive action taken to avoid delays...can't wait to see the first TD.
I believe this project can speed up, with involvement of private players, if a private player's get involved ,we can start the production from 2032 onwards and gradually let the necessary changes happen during production,instead of letting platform get mature,as we will be in shortage of aircraft's saves us time
WOW...I don't know whether this project will be success or not even though I wish to be a success. But one thing is for sure I will be a Grandpa before AMCA becomes operational in large numbers in our air force and becomes our front line fighter.
Waiting until 2038? They can go screw themselves.
da ka timeline hai. Sab milke humko tuchiya bana rahe hai.
Link PDF is quoting idrw article !! But then drdo website hosted this PDF. What a mess.
This actually one looks like a a doable timeline & a worstcade scenario... But pretty sensible claims.We should have started work on 6th gen along with AMCA.
Take a look;
Waaaay to much gap estimated here....assemble the first TD of AMCA by 2025 which will have its first flight by 2027,
Again waaaay too much gap predicted. 2026-2030 would be enough for testing airframe & tech. They're not doing everything from ground-up like Tejas Mark1.AMCA will enter production by 2035 onwards in Mk1 configuration for 40 jets
Depends on how long it takes GTRE/RR K-10 to materialise. Doubtful it'll take 20 years. This engine could be operational by 2035 itself, within time for 1st batch!.. So again, hugely conservative estimates.and Mk2 configuration in 2039 for 80+ jets.
