Strength comparison of 3 d printed parts ??We are 3d printing the titanium bulkheads. TAI has bought a custom-built electron beam 3d printing machine early this year.
TAI TO 3D PRINT 6 METER-LONG AEROSTRUCTURES WITH THE “WORLD’S LARGEST” ELECTRON BEAM MACHINE FROM SCIAKY
Niggah .. I assure you this link does not exist ... CATS is a HAL project designed to work with tejas and no other. We will get to see multiple "MOUs" before CATS is connected to AMCA (an ADA project)
Let’s not downgrade the effort of Turkish engineers in the project. If even assembly was easy, even Zimbabwe would make an fighter.
Their govt is spending money to create an project. It feels it can be like France or Korea in the defence market. Aviation is the costly sector also making lots of money.
Murica has ever more advanced version of this.
I doubt all these 5 th gen aircraft being shitted out are any match for f22 or even f 35.
F22 was a product of 3 decades of research and it's capabilities aren't even fully know yet.
I doubt even our own AMCA can match f 22.
5 gen isn't all just about the shining looking look and shape there is much more to it.
We have the tech for canopy with a special chemical coating, (source in this thread )
Radar absorbent paint which was made back in 2017.
Internal weapon bay material that absorbs radar wave.
F 22 has all the same things but I belive they are individually better.
Why are we not going with eots in mk1 is still out of my reach do we not have the technology?Russians are the first one who put research papers radar reflection of planes using Angular straight faces. At that time, they don't give a shit and US guys took that research paper and make the F-117. From there they got a lot of understanding and finally F-22 came.
Even today F-22 put much higher emphasis on stealth compared to other platforms. Also it has superior Kinetic performance and go against pretty good agile 4.5 fighters.
But US went on network warfare and decided to put more emphasis on Sensor Fusion stuff like EOTS, DAS etc. The perspective in the middle changed somewhat from what F22 was meant to do.
We are all following that 2 approach now.
This is why Chinese and even Pakis mock us. But their mocking is Tejas too had foreign help and foreign components. There is no “help” but payment given to get work done. If india is to pay BAE or Boeing they will also do the work for us. At the end they own the IP.I am not mocking anyone here. I am just listing down the help Turkey and SK getting while our guys are getting hyperventilated why AMCA is not here in a faster line.
Don't worry.This is why Chinese and even Pakis mock us. But their mocking is Tejas too had foreign help and foreign components. There is no “help” but payment given to get work done. If india is to pay BAE or Boeing they will also do the work for us. At the end they own the IP.
If at all, Indian scientists should put pressure on the govt instead of giving timelines to media every few months.
Indian AF requirements is huge, so we haven’t started work on AMCA and prioritizing mk2 in the meantime, which makes sense. Just have to have hope in God and Indian diplomacy that we don’t get into an full flown war with China before 2040
