Some research into Radar Absorbing Strcuture/Materials.
ACR Pillai's Work: (People might remember the work featured in Defence Science Journal the CJA radar absorber ones)
Harish Barshilia's Work: (Chief Scientist of Surface Engineering Group ,NAL. Lots of work most not on absorbers).
Kumar Vaibhav Srivastava: (IIT guy loads of work on absorbers many of the people he works with (Indians) also used to work in Korean Universities on absorbers)

Testing issues , sidebays have ccm , which in turn are launched in high g , high speed manuver , this require long testing period , airframe changes , so ditched for mk 1 , mk 2 for sure
What are the advantages od GaN based aesa radar on GaAs based radar?

AMCA will e inducted by 2034, how much wait?
Usage of CATS warrior will eliminate need for sidebays.
Cats warrior will be there so do , wingman of enemy , you will definitely need ccm ,hope we go for something like cuda and aim 260 after astra saga is completed by 2025 .

Timeline for mk 1 is not 2034 , who told you 2034 ? , And what drdo is doing is developing basic capability first , making a f 35 first , then go for advanced one , like more missile in weapons bay , if you look closely at 4 missile layout , there is space for staggered 3missile , somewhat above two in it , if we can notice it ,drdo can too ,also launching mechanism and launcher size need reduction , they are going with available tech , when advanced one are available will integrate it .

Patience for more advanced project to come in limelight and present one to get completed .

Production will start in 2031, first aircraft will be delivered in 3 years as everyaircraft takes atleast 3 years to start getting rolled out since the placement of order, Hence by 2034 it will be inducted.

Also to add , older ccm are going to be complemented by smaller cuda like missile for smaller range and almost half the length

3 years ,36 months for production ,too long , we are not doing f 35 saga ,nor j20 saga , it's different.

China delivered first production aircraft in 2015 , lrip one , even though they were bit unclear on it's problem and aspect , like ws 15 ,etc .

We are clear from start , we want a flying bird with given parameters to be achieved in mk 1 , and full exploitation of capability in mk 2 , no mumbo jumbo claims , no too weapons claim , only what is possible , also we are testing prototype , when china developed f 35 ,it was over ambitious on operational paramters like inter operability and all.

Koreans too took a intelligent route , we are more advanced and confident took some more risk but better aircraft overall
