From what I least knew, Uttam outperformed 2052 in all parameters at A2A.

But it is struggling at A2G mode in sorting out clutter from targets. Anything on that?
What I know is
Uttam is a roaring success in tests


They are going to test uttam in a rig with all subsystems like ew ., communication systems.... before they finally test on this on aircraft
And this all set-up will have subsystems of Tejas mk1a......
Bdw I am not saying all tests of utttam aesa completed( I will confirm this later)

Afaik, eltas have been ordered right? Very few though. Can't recall numbers.

Not 100% yet.

Try to find something on the A2G. I know some issues were there. Maybe you'll come something I missed. 💁‍♂️

They've still not confirmed Uttam or 2052 for the Mark1A upcoming prototype... So I'm guessing 50:50 chance.

IAF is pretty much interested in integrating UTTAM in MK1A , integration will start whenever IAF ask to do so.

Earlier LRDE said first small scale batch will be produced from 2022. SAR is still under testing software upgradation is frequently happening .

It may find its place in MK1A .

IAF will go for whichever available is proven to work, AESA to ATGM... they have no specific interests on desi or Israeli.

2052 was supposed to kick off the 1st Mark1A batch. But now it seems Uttam may be available by 2023 production batch, if not the 2022 prototypes. That's why I'm trying to know if any issues I heard of still remain or were sorted.
