Within half a decade how ?
Ya'll Nibbiars a follow on IAC 1 design is possible within 7 to 8 years considering delays in securing equipments. But within a half decade how?.

Some update.

1. Electrical heavy weight torpedo,
a new generation torpedo that can
be launched from both ships and
submarines for anti-submarine warfare is under development.

2. Jalastra, a medium weight torpedo capable of being launched from naval platforms, is also under development.

3. DRDO is developing a universal
vertical launcher capable of launching
all the indigenous missiles onboard
Indian Naval Ships.

4. DRDO is in advanced stage of
development of submarine periscope.
Submarine hoistable masts for
periscope, radar and communication
antennae are also being developed.

5. The long range anti-ship missile
is a land launched medium-range anti￾ship missile, which will be able to
target naval surface targets.

6. Astra Mk-2 with two-pulse
propulsion is being developed to
further enhance the kill zone of Astra
Mk-1 missile. Astra Mk-2 will achieve
a longer kill range, one of the highest
amongst all air-to-air beyond visual
range missiles available across the
world thus far. To further increase
the ‘kill range’ to nearly double of the
Mk-2 and ensure the wider ‘no escape
zone’, DRDO has successfully tested
and validated the solid fuel ducted
ramjet propulsion technology.

7. The New Generation Main Battle
Tank (NG-MBT) is envisaged as the
futuristic MBT of the Indian Army.
It will be a medium tank powered by
1500 HP engine and armed with a
125 mm smoothbore gun. Allelectric
turret drive, explosive reactive armour
and active protection system are being
developed for the new generation of
tanks.
Why is it called long range if the range is medium...weird drdo logic😑

the construction phase of this project started in 2017...normally a six-year Production Cycle is listed in the contract provision for such tonnage of combat vessel. it might be delayed by a year due to some unexpected design change. but it seems the shipyard is still aiming at that important time node in 2023

Just go for rubber tracks instead of all metal here.
