3D doesn't really give much advantage but just adds up weight.AMCA will most probably feature 2D TVC. DRDO worked a lot jointly with the Russians on this technology few years back.
Also, HAL has some experience working with TVC gained by assembling the AL-31 engine in its Koratpur plant.
These are the UAV projects undertaken by NAL in the past but all of them are propeller based hand held drones. Maybe this was something for a UAV which never became a reality.Guys, is anyone aware of a 1kN turbojet engine being developed by NAL? Its being done under a program named "SGTE" (Small Gas Turbine Engine?). I just found a couple of papers regarding the design of its turbine BLISK stage. Apparently the aerothermodynamic and mechanical design of stage was done before 2016 and the resonance response of BLISK was studied and found satisfactory by 2019.
Don't know why they are making it. 1 kN is smaller than even Manik. For drone swarms maybe? But the project is too old, back then there was no drone swarm project either. Then again, NAL is CSIR, not DRDO, so maybe its for some civilian application we don't know about?
@porky_kicker you know what this engine is for?
That's 1:1 scale mockup for geometric RCS measurement whick will happen at DRDO's ORANGE facility in Hyderabad.
Economically, YES. Practicaly, Not quiet sure.
These are for secondary and in case of emergency use only... Say doubling up during full scale war as force multipliers... always front line combat deployed aircrafts will be tasked to do the damageNow hawk's can be used to target airfields close to loc, ib and lac. Eg skardu, bolari etc.
