Supposedly the effect of varying thrust on either engine spaced further apart helps increase rates of turn (not sure in what pitch, roll or yaw). Also to maximize the effect of TVC, t...

DRDO needs to start X-plane (experimental aircraft) projects to test out various concepts in parallel with working on deployable aircraft like AMCA. Working on deployable aircraft does not allow for taking any design risks. That's because if the design proves to be unworkable, it sets the program ba...
