Re: Chandrayan-2 Mission

Since we dont have a Orbiter, can we send 2 Landers? one are the equatorial plane, and the other at South pole. Both of them can communicate via CY2.

Are they planning a M88-Kaveri engine for Tejas Mk1A? this will need a round of testing and re-certification. will delay the procurement of Mk1A.

IMHO, M88-Kaveri should be used for Tejas Mk2 or M1B or whatever, without delaying the 83 M1A procurement.
