Do they plan to use RR engines or going for an expensive Honeywell route ?Nobody knows what will happen 20 years later... Look at Tejas replaceing Mig-21 & Mig-27 both.
We may soon buy new Mig-29s while IAF just declared that Jaguars will not be retired unto 2035, well after Mark2. So, ORCA & AMCA may both replace a number of old Mig-29, Mirage-2000, Jaguars & Su-30.
RR engines are cheaper in comparison available and being produced here for BAE Hawk too. If we can keep 60+ jaguars it will aid immensely to ease off the burden.
