M2000 can't beat J10,What are the technical challenges in retrofitting our indigenous Uttam AESA radar in the Mirage 2000.Does the existing engine have enough power to support its installation.
Is there even a slim chance of the Mirage 2000 being able to fire the Meteor BVR missile if it had the Uttam AESA radar.
We have or in the process of developing many advanced technologies for our LCA Mk2 and AMCA aircraft. Maybe some of them can be ported on to the Mirage 2000.
I am assuming that the French will not have objections to sharing the source code for the Mirage 2000 FCS with us. To enable us to modify the aircraft to accept new radars and weapons.
This measure is only to keep the Mirage 2000 relevant till the MWF/LCA Mk2 enters duty in numbers.
An Mirage 2000 with an AESA radar will give the Chinese J10C a run for its money.
Don't talk about M53 yet
The J10 itself is an M2000 reinforced with all-moving canards, and then modified with the area rate, , M2000 circling stronge in an instant, J10 is stronger,
