Firstly we should attain perfection to build 4.5 gen aircraft and it's variants.
Then we should think of developing 5.5 gen or 6 gen plane.
Let's not behave like pakis who has no experience in developing any gen of fighter aircraft and they are barking about 5 gen azm

You have a valid point but if we don't simultaneously work on FGFA we would end up being behind

My first very long article on AMCA.
Nice effort. Will probably read in detail tomorrow, but few things that popped out to me that you might want to correct:-
  • "Aircrafts" is not a word. Plural of aircraft is also aircraft. (Sorry if I sound nitpicky, but these kind of things do get noticed)
  • First para, how you write about the jets AMCA will replace makes it sound as if Mirage 2000, Jaguar ,etc are already retired, so maybe its better to add that IAF seeks to replace these post-2030.
  • Multiple sub-sections under the Fly By Light heading are irrelevant to AMCA itself and pertain to a general advantage of OFC over copper wires. These include: distance, security and cost.
  • The immune to EMI subsection under Fly By Light is also not very relevant to AMCA. It should mention that OFC makes AMCA more resistant to non-nuclear EMP bombs that are currently being developed.
  • Not sure about this, but I think Adrishya RAM is just a ferrite paint. That is F-117 Nighthawk era technology, very maintenance intensive. Its too old a stealth technology to be using in AMCA. Instead, include the many wide-band RAS composites that are being developed, multiple papers about these exist and have been posted in this thread before. @Karthi also posted one recently in DRDO and PSU news thread.
  • The information is spread out weird. Radar is already covered, then there is another section labelled avionics, then there is a third section labelled GaN HEMTT. These need to all be under avionics, GaN HEMTT needs to be under Radar. Similarly Sensor Fusion and Sensor & Targetting systems are also two different sections that should be clubbed and put under Avionics. Fly by Light is also part of avionics.

What does HEMTT stands for?
