In forward bases we should have the Concrete shelters which can withstand cruise missile attacks.

Re: LCA News and Discussions

All the future variants of LCA will depend on the fact that how fast the HAL can produce the aircraft.
The IAF has requirements for LCA class of aircraft, but they are not going to wait for ever for the aircraft. As the LCA delays its orders will be eaten up by MRCA and FGFA aircraft's.

The engine may be based on the Tomahawk, but it also seems likely that it is based on the Russian AS-15, the Russian SS-N-27 Club, or a Chinese turbojet design.
