Nahi re.. That is the penultimate one.

Latest one has the following tails, both vertical & horizontal.

Btw could you tell me that why this slab is added?
WTF dude! That's the control-surface on (modified) horizontal stabiliser. 🤭
Here, I highlighted its shape...

@Kuntal look I think that made a cut in the horizontal stabilisers too. That would mean they're still tampering with details.
:facepalm: The following was not the final one either. Gotta wait till Aero India...
This is the final one I believe.

Front looks very x35 ish and nose looks horrible.
It has similarities with F-35, but its much sleeker. Nose remains unchanges, except maybe cockpit has been lifted up a bit.

This yellow concave rise may be new addition (either that, or a blemish on scale model).

Poor cockpit visibility....and not true diamond shaped wings.
Rear visibility is not an issue with IAF, you can see Su-30...

...but AMCA has got INSANE over-the-shoulder & over-the-nose visibility.

Also, I was talking on this 2day only!.. Internal (side) bay launching of CCM at high speed and/or Gs, require years flight trials.
So to reduce development time internal bays of AMCA Mark1 is to carry only BVRs & bombs, that won't be launched in high-G. It's only gonna be used for for BVR sniping & stealthy strike missions. Closest A2A engagement would be ASRAAM or Astra-IR launched from 40-50 km away.

We'll reintroduce CCM sidebays in AMCA Mark2 probably, was there in initial design...
