Re: Naval Tejas Mk1/Mk2: News & Discussion - 23 February 2019

AI-2021 will be very interesting, 15 more months.Hopefully, we may get some idea of specification with a model. I think selection of engine will be important, is it 414(F-18E/F) or 404(F-18C/D) or M88(Rafale).

FATA is more than 200 Km from LoC and IB, it will be tough for IAF to reach that far without using stand-off weapons.

As Brahmos is yet to be inducted, other options maybe Kh-59 or other weapon in this series.

Other possibility would SF attack from Afghanistan but it would be very risky.
