Why not processing power and avionics , if iaf wanted a dogfighter , supermaneuvarable aircraft they would have asked for it , they are pretty specific about stealth and avionics , we can develop good mission computer , it can be a little more bulky but could do the role , also fly by optics will help , also lrde are developing better ew suite which will be tested , modified and upgraded from tejas mk 2 program.Yup. Not in terms of the processing power or maybe even avionics, but otherwise, yeah. Role will be the same. Strike aircraft. Same as Rafale.
sir why aren't we opting them,i read and found that it is maintenence intensive is that the reason(AESA) radars are flat plates that can scan up to sixty degrees in any direction from directly ahead of them. By mounting an AESA radar on a swashplate, the swashplate angle is added to the electronic scan angle. The typical swashplate angle chosen for this application is 40 degrees, enabling the radar to scan a total angle of 200 degrees out of 360.
can you give some more detail on the systems and what exactly will be there with amca,any article or details
Can't be assertained for certainty as we don't know the internal fuel weight... With 12t empty weight & assuming 65-98kN engine power, T/W is as follows for all the values of claimed/rumoured amounts of internal fuel;Amca thrust to weight ratio with using ge414 ins6 engine???
And using more powerful engine 110knCan't be assertained for certainty as we don't know the internal fuel weight... With 12t empty weight & assuming 65-98kN engine power, T/W is as follows for all the values of claimed/rumoured amounts of internal fuel;
4t > 1.23
5t > 1.15
6.5t > 1.06
And using more powerful engine 110kn
I am more concerned about the CCS approval cause any further delay in funds could hamper program.Ccs approval should come by the end of this month
I don't have the data for the same to give an opinion@Annaa edited my post (surprise surprise).
1.37, 1.29 & 1.18 respectively. Ignore the 1st one tho... Mark2 will definitely have to carry atleast 6ton fuel for its more powerful engines, so its loaded weight would be between 18-19t.
For Mark1, I have come up with a calculation.
We know AMCA's empty weight =12t... external load = 6.5t... internal bay capacity = 2t... MTOW = ±25t... So internal fuel should be 25–(12+6.5+2) = 4.5t
So, the likely T/W value of AMCA Mark1 is 1.19!
