^ Oh dear. Another Fighter Olympics which shall keep this forum busy for the next decade (while the end result probably will be another goverment to goverment purchase of 2-3 squadrons)? Hopefully by that time the LCA Mk2 will be flying in quantity and the AMCA will be entering service..

So it is indeed the parachute recovery system (more common on gliders). It would no doubt be helpful in certain conditions but obviously not in all situations. What is the rescue system mentioned on their website.. aircraft parachute recovery? Was the system installed in the one which crashed. link
