A-2-A refueling training needs to be done... & the trainer-aircrafts are going to be with full operational capability.Why the Air force has put additional caveat for trainer aircraft to have Air to Air Refueling probe? HAL is stating that this move would delay the delivery of aircraft, Can these trainer aircraft which are two seaters can be used for ground attack roles?
Wiki is not updated....the covid19 will delay the productionI Hope the delivery of remaining 15 Aircraft for No. 18 Squadron is completed by September 2020 deadline as per wiki, I hope there are no delays in delivery schedule despite Covid-19. Why the Air force has put additional caveat for trainer aircraft to have Air to Air Refueling probe? HAL is stating that this move would delay the delivery of aircraft, Can these trainer aircraft which are two seaters can be used for ground attack roles? with more than 90 Mig-21 waiting to be replaced? why IAF puts additional caveats again and again? 8 trainer aircraft which were to be delivered has got delayed?
Thanks for clarifications Patriots and Bleh. When we can expect roll out of trainer Aircraft? any details on that?Wiki is not updated....the covid19 will delay the production
Bdw total 18(4+4+10) trainers will be built,of foc standard s.
So ifr is a must .
Again all trainers fighter trianers means will be used in combat
Then hal is preparing a 3rd line ,which will produce trainers.
Trainers will be produced after the completion of foc variant s.
There was also a design with a pure delta with canards. Many designs were put forth. Since the canards added more FCLAWs and increased the cost it was dropped. I still think adopting the LCA navy as an airforce version will suffice.
I think import lobby is trying hard to sabotage the deal and that's why we are seeing the delayPrice is fixed , all papers are ready , mahurat has passed , what are they waiting for ?
How can import lobby sabotage the deal when we can't import an equivalent system ? LCA is for IAF's light aircraft requirement, What equivalent is present which you think we can import ? Deal will be signed when Finance Ministry approves money for it. Given the current economic condition it might not be in priority list.I think import lobby is trying hard to sabotage the deal and that's why we are seeing the delay
Don't be surprised if the deal is not signed on December and will be even postponed further
What production rate are they gunning for in mk 2.Lsp s are for testing purpose,will be used by Ada for further development...its not for iaf....
Bdw iaf has said that it will order 200 Tejas mk2
Ya......the rafales India got in 2020 will be in service till 2050 atleast....What production rate are they gunning for in mk 2.
Assuming production starts in 2025.
Let's say production is 20 per year thats still 100 till 2030 and 200 till 2035.
