MK1a is all Aesa and MK1 are MMR like J10 variants,
LCA is not simple delta but cranked delta, a far better design than J10 and jf17
Do you know what is China's first aircraft with cranked delta wings? J7P

If you are talking about him, I bet you won’t be able to design it in eight years, even if you give it to the Americans.
It completely changed the aerodynamic layout and flight control system of LCA, which is completely another kind of aircraft

nice! Fully ferry flight configuration..will have a ferry range in excess of 1750 km in this configuration with full internal fuel, and 3 drop tanks.

And this appears to be a FOC Tejas Mk1 of the No.18 'Flying Bullets' with the IFR probe integrated and better paint quality than what is seen on the LSPs, where paint is always seen peeling off.

F7P and F7PG retired out of turn ahead of 'delta' Mirage III and Mirage V in Pak air force.
Problem isn't it being cranked delta but being from Chinese stable.

Why would you replace a 83-85 kN afterburning engine with an engine that produces 75 kN afterburning thrust?? Please do some research before making such points.
M88-2 is a 7.5 Tons engine.
M88-3 is a 9 Tons engine. Has already be tested. (for a super Rafale for UAE some years ago)
M88-4 is a 10.5 tons engine. Only at a drawing board level.

Which one of those will you use in F5 standard?

I don't think m88 3 will be pursued further as fcas will require something entirely new

You forget that Rafale road map is made up to F7 standart, and used in the force up to 2070 !
All the birds are becoming heavier, and need more electrical supply => more powerfull engine.
Actual Rafale air intakes are free for a 8.7 tons engine (ie a M88-3 with 4% less power.... easy).

We know about chinese design quality when we saw their "5th" gen shit.
Stop bullshiting here please and talk facts.

It is M3 and M5, the interception performance is better than J7, and the service life is longer than J7.

May be better than old school JF17 design, but J10 is a close coupled canards (thanks the israelis...) : this is better for lift and high turn.
Nope J10 is still not upto the mark, LCA has far better design with canards/levcons in Mk2 it will lead the race

1. The LCA currently entering the Indian Air Force are all PD radars.
2. They are canard wings, LCA is delta wings, the aerodynamic performance and the difficulty of flight control programming are not the same level
Its more difficult to perform without canards.. also having canards increases the radar profile. ..
Your third generation fighter J-20 has canards.. Guess, your lousy engineers found it hard to manage without canards..

Actually it's quite superior than the Mig-21 The cranked-delta wings gave significantly higher ITR & low speed performance.

Combo don't just copy. They improve. Almost all J-11/15/16 are suoerior to the original Su-27/33.. This whole things are made of composites.
