Please ask any other fighter manufacturer to mate Israeli Radar, Russian Missiles, American Engine with Indigenous FBW, not counting whims & fancies of Indian Air Force, in a tiny sized fighter jet. You will get shock of your life with their replies.
Please ask SAAB what would be their production rate per year if they are given an order of 20 fighters ?HAL didn't studied the plane. It was the DRDO job.
HAL just produce it at a pityfull rate.
No offense, but you didn't understand the complexity of the above.Ask SAAB , with a US engine, US and european missiles, english FBW, non fully swedish radar. In a tiny sized jet.
US Engine, European Missiles, English FBW & non-fully Swedish Radar... All these adhere to NATO standards.
Never before in world, no one has even tried to integrate Israeli Radar, Russian Missiles, American Engine with Indigenous FBW. Russian missiles have their own system whereas Israeli radar & American engine have their own. Every subsystem of Russian vis-a-vis Israeli / American are different.
