Kaveri was tested on an IL76 test bed. Pictures are available on the internet. That is how they found that the engine is underpowered. If your claim is that has Kaveri ever powered an aircraft even if it is underpowered, yes it has.
Beyond that everything you wrote is just garbage. All you have done is caught up to 70s era Soviet technology. Just because we have Soviet engines doesn’t mean they are reliable. Indian defense minister himself has stated that the Soviet engines have low reliability and are expensive to maintain.
Ecosystems don’t develop overnight but India is on the right path building out various ecosystems right now including in metallurgy.
And this nonsense about India just being an assembler of engines must stop. It just makes you look like a fool. HAL has developed a complete ecosystem including making its own SCB for the shakti and manufacturing them through private partners. Currently 450 engines have been produced, per HAL. They expect a demand for 1000 more engines.
Here’s SAFRAN themselves advertising that the engine was CO-DEVELOPED with HAL. There goes your lies. If you are going to lie, you must quit this forum. We have no patience for jokers like you, frankly.
Hindustan Aeronautics Limited and Safran Helicopter Engines have announced a joint venture dedicated to the development, production, sales and support of helicopter engines.
Per Mr. Franck Saudo CEO SAFRAN Helicopter engines: “The creation of this new joint venture marks a turning point in our relationship with HAL and the Indian MoD with the development and production
of a new generation of helicopter engine. We are proud to further expand our structuring partnership with HAL, which began more than 50 years ago, and which was recently illustrated with the development and production of the Shakti engine
and the inauguration of our joint venture Helicopter Engines MRO Pvt Limited (HE-MRO). With a fleet of over 1,000 engines, India’s Armed Forces are one of the largest operators of Safran-designed helicopter engines.”
Where in the above do you think that SAFRAN considers HAL to be just an assembler?
if you are going to lie, I am going to kick your ass all day long.
