Re: US military, technology, arms, tactics

Somehow I doubt they would say there were problems found in the design of the engine itself as that would kill the entire program. It's always a faulty tube here or a loose nut there..

Re: Kaveri & Aero-Engine: News & Discussion

Even at 70 - 80 kN wet thrust, the existing Kaveri - once certified - can be used on other platforms and even on the Tejas as a LIFT type aircraft. I doubt it will ever see its usage on the Tejas. The certification of just about anything in aerospace is a long and expensive affair. Not only would t...
