AMCA program evolved out of the IAF Medium Combat Aircraft (MCA) programme. In October 2008, the IAF asked ADA to prepare a detailed project report on the development of an MCA incorporating stealth features.

In March 2010, the aircraft was renamed as Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA).

AMCA is a single seat, twin engined, stealth all weather swing role fighter aircraft. AMCA will perform air superiority, ground attack, interception, strike and other types of roles. It will combine stealth, supercruise, advanced AESA radar, supermaneuverability, AI, data fusion, advanced avionics etc.

AMCA went through many design iterations over the years. The initial design of the AMCA was a tailless, delta wing aircraft with twin engines. The latest configuration as of 2021 is a design with trapezoidal wings , all moving horizontal tails, twin canted vertical fins with twin engines. It further incorporates diverterless supersonic intakes ( DSI ) with serpentine ducts.

The AMCA program has been split into two parts

1. AMCA MK1 which will be a 5 generation aircraft powered by GE 414 engines.

2. AMCA MK2 which will a 5++ generation aircraft powered by higher thrust locally developed engines. It will incorporate many 6 generation technologies such as the ability to be optionally manned.
