Article mentions that all LCA MK1 will be delivered by 2028-29. By this rate IAF and IN will get MK2 TEDBF by who knows when.
They appear mentioned IOC Mark2 will start delivery from 2027... So the production of MWF & LCA will go on some by some for some time, not one starting after completion of the other as many here are thinking.LCA MK1 A deliveries will be completed by 2028. The Airforce is going to get their 1st aircraft by 2024 and with around 16 aircrafts per year, the deliveries should get completed by 2028-2029 .
That's also taking into consideration if any export orders are secured by LIFT (but given that China has managed <20 exported FC-1 despite aggressive marketing, some get your hopes up).
