Is it used to control the flaps of Wing's and Tail ?
India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited signs a deal with Israel Aerospace Industries - New Delhi Times - India's Only International NewspaperIndia’s state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has signed a deal with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI)/Elta Systemsfor 83 active electronically scanned array (AESA) radars and an equal nu…www.newdelhitimes.com
Both of these Elta jamming systems SkyShield & ELL-8251 are operated by Indian Air Force... and both are big centreline placement pods.
For fucks sake, slap one on those thing's empty pylon, we can't have FOC Tejas flying around vanilla!..
You couldn't open the link & see the dates?..is this an old news? am i smelling corruption here? why HAL signing contract?
Tejas looks modern compared to every other aircraft in our inventory except Rafales and cockpit of upcoming Tejas MK2 looks as good as that of F35 I saw it in Lucknow exhibition
Better use a higher payload aircraft for that. But more importantly our IOC/FOC standard operational Tejas need a self-protection jammer at least from surface threats. Other than chaff&flare, they're mostly vanilla right now. Too vulnerable with high bomb load.Can we make a growler type ew fighter, can tejas be converted for this role? I mean it is small, difficult to detect almost from all fighters we have as many people claim here
If you had taken photos there, do upload everything on the Defexpo 2020 thread.I saw it in Lucknow exhibition
Bro discussed many times only the outermost pylon will be used with spj pod...Better use a higher payload aircraft for that. But more importantly our IOC/FOC standard operational Tejas need a self-protection jammer at least from surface threats. Other than chaff&flare, they're mostly vanilla right now.

The central hardpoints of Tejas kept empty in most cases. If either of the above jammers is carried there...View attachment 52416...then we could make good use of use Tejas’s superior A2G strike capabilities.

Yeah, I know. But that's the ELL-8212/ELL-8222 self-protection jammer pod.Bro discussed many times only the outermost pylon will be used with spj pod...
Though jf17 uses spj pod under intake
... again a ccm ....or an ejector missile like mica can be used there
Hal Ada will do ...if iaf asks to do that......Yeah, I know. But that's the ELL-8212/ELL-8222 self-protection jammer pod.
However, these two Rafael SkyShield & ELTA-ELL-8251 are both much larger ones, meant to be carried at centerline hardpoint... mostly effective against ground threats or aircrafts at lower altitudes (removes the need for fuel inefficient terrain hugging flight).
Watch the two videos i shared, you'll see what i mean. Anna spot the two news links we have both of those in inventory, but used on inferior air to ground attack aircrafts like Su-30 & Jaguar!.. Tejas can do better.
Actually can you ask HVT's opinion on this?
