I feel Indian Navy should go for 200+ TEDBF atleast as many can be deployed at Andaman and Nicobar Islands, and Andaman and Nicobar should be the prime hub for Indian Navy. Currently no fighter jets are deployed there and these Islands have huge strategic advantage, Also I would prefer in my opinion, Indian Airforce should purchase an additional S-400 Regiment for deployment at Andaman and Nicobar Islands.
Su30 mki are constantly at andmaan as part of detachment under joint commands.

Navy is planning to 250 jets and to take over coastal defence in tbe future.

Tedbf numbers will increase . India will have to build more aircraft carriers as well as assualt ships.

Tedbf Design will evolve into full stealth in future . ( Frontal stealth is already there ).

Yes, TEDBF with Diamond shaped wings isn’t ruled out in future.

Wings need to be as big as possible to generate lift on aircraft carriers.
Naval stealth will never be as stealthy as airforce jets. There are many compromise necessary on aircraft carriers due to short runways .

Hence amca can't be navalized and hence tedbf design is chosen .

We should simultaneously find export customers for Tejas, ORCA/TEDBF and AMCA.

Yes because a delta is the most apt for high wing area.

Wouldn't the Burmese and Indonese panic with planes numbering their airforce near the islands.
This would cause a buildup in the region.

They have no territorial dispute with India.
Infact India gifted a submarine to Burma which is probably still operated by indian crew.

Anyway our planes do not violet their territorial integrity.

That's why it have space , during mlu , they can replace old cpace consuming components ,also i hope they replace all vls with uvls and also increase their number
Isn't adding too much armament later would cause design and stability issues ?
Many suggest that due to the above reason our ship can't be given future muscles

Depends on design of vessels. With modern designs it should not be a problem.

Btw we have been upgrading our ships for decades .
Ships are designed to even increase in displacement over their lifetime as more upgrades happen.
