The only physical Difference between IOC and FOC standard is external refueling probe and for that too internal plumbing is complete, only the probe which is plug and play which can be fitted with little efforts and flight testing is all that is required.
It was confirmed that IOC versions don't have the refueling plumbing & can't be given that either... Unfortunate, but other than that, just a matter of hours indeed.

IOC aircrafts can be added with refueling probe but the Iafs base repair depo can't do it. It has to be done by Hal and that would require money
Quite a bit of money apparently... Either HVT or Indranil said internal crap needs to be shifted to fit the plumbing for aerial-refueling.

That would be a deep upgrade similar to MLU of Mig-29 to UPG standard.

No. IOC Tejas Mk1 do have internal plumbing for external refueling probe. From what more new information which is coming all the IOC Tejas Mk1 are being upgraded to FOC standard with gun capabilities. These are being prioritised over newer planes. So we will have FOC standard squadron of LCA during the war now. If needed even a few LSPs can be upgraded to fully combat capable plane in a few days if required....☺

Not now they don't, unless you got official source contradicting this from IRDW:
"...it could require remapped fuel plumping and many changes to the internally hardware of the aircraft which IAF has decided to avoid at this stage and might be done at a later stage by HAL in separate contract work order."

Where did you get that?.. No news on gun aerial-firing being done on the FOCs yet. Slapping a gun is easy but it needs to be operationalised 1st.

Hi guys !
A couple of questions, how does the Tejas compare to aircraft like the JF-17 or the FA-50, in terms of performance, armament and cost?
Are there any pre-contracts or export interests by foreign countries?

IRDW is unreliable crap.

That is not untrue, lol... but it looks like they have quoted someone. They do that all the time, just copy or quote & pretend it is there original text.
IoC lca can get ifr but it will need fitting at Hal and take some time.
But it was anyway planned all ioc will get foc standard and later all foc will reach mk1a standard during mlu.

Import Lobby is too powerful as stated by Rohit Banerjee sir, I believe now Indian Airforce will induct the Tejas Aircraft, since there is a ban on import equipment. Ever since Manohar Parrikar left MOD, MOD has gone back to its older days.

HAL Tejas has to be inducted in large numbers, I hope HAL Tejas replaces Mig-21, Mig-27 and Jaguar Squadrons, we can improve Tejas according to its dedicated roles, For example US Air force uses F-16CJ model of F-16 to suppress SAM, we can also do the same.

कोई मेरे सवाल क्या जबाब दी सकता हैं कि आब कएवेरी इंजन क्या संसौन्दन चालू है क्या और क्या हाल तेजस मैं अब लगाना के काबिल होइ चुका है क्या, अगर नही तो क्यों ?
भाई जेट इंजन को इसे बिना टेस्ट करे इस्तमाल नहीं कर सकते. जेट इंजन जो untested है उसे सिंगल इंजन aircraft में इस्तमाल कराने के बड़े रिस्क हैं.

कावेरी इंजन का वजन पहले से काफी क्रम कर लिया गया है और ट्रस्ट भी bahdya गया है.
बट metallurgy मे काम करना है और इसे हेवी temperature लंबे time तक झेल न के लिय और stabilize करना होगा.
तो इसलिए हम इसे अभी तेजस में नहीं use कर सकते

और information के लिए यह थ्रेड देखो

कावेरी इंजन ड्रोन में use किया जाये गा funding रिलीज हो चुकी है

Excellent Analysis. Obsession for Foreign equipment should end, in our armed forces. Without a vibrant domestic Industrial complex, we cannot fight a 2.5 front war, Our losses in Hardware and Aircraft can be replaced. Pakistan Strategy against superior IAF Jets like SU-30MKI and Rafale was to throw huge number of JF-17 and Mirages so that eventually our superior aircraft can be shot down, and Pakistan can claim propaganda victory. We need HAL Tejas in numbers for next Balakot strikes once aircraft like Mirage or Rafale finish their bombing runs, we can intercept hostile Pakistan Aircraft with our HAL Tejas Aircraft and finish them off. If Pakistan throw up numbers we can also do the same. Unlike us Pakistan has import each and every single aircraft.

बस समझने की कोशिश कर रहा है .. गीला और गैर-गीला जोर के बीच अंतर क्या है: निश्चित नहीं:
[/ निर्णय]

जहा तकक मुझे मक़्लम है इंजिन गेला होता टैब उसका आफ्टर बर्नर शुरू होता है। और जैब इंजन के आफ्टर बरनेर बैंड होता हैं उसे वक़त व्हो डॉय होते हैं।
i had to use google translate but i got your point about wet thrust. if you could type in english, then everyone can understand:truestory:
