I have written a long article on this form, you guys should search it, but the sum total of the article is that LCA has a strike radius of 1000 km with 2000 KG payload. It can carry out Osirak type attack equivalent to F – 16 aircraft of Israel. The main reason of efficiency of LCA is that the Delta wing inspite of having large surface area has low drag. Presently it seems latest FOC LCA has empty weight 7000kg, MTOW 14200kg, internal fuel 2900kg. FOC LCA is equivalent to Mirage 2000 in range, payload & LCA MKIA will be better.

That image is old and outdated..the new figures are in another image that shows a vast range of weapons that can be loaded on each pylon..The outboard pylons are now rated for max 310 kg each.

This image also makes it clear that HAL calls the Tejas trainer as Lead-In Fighter Trainer. Hence HLFT-42 designation for an internal HAL project to develop a LIFT from the Tejas trainer.

Good poster but the designer should have used borders and different shades of green.

This is a fake news story.



Unless neither the U.S. Air Force nor Taiwanese military radar has detected the SU-35.



wow !



Maybe the SU-35 is the king of stealth aircraft!

I know the whole story.

A Chinese military plane crossing the midline of the strait requires multiple proofs.
