it looks like IA is sitting on heights right at the LAC like yellow hump etc. the SFF has crossed LAC and is occupying black top that is why people close to IA are saying that IA has not 'crossed' LAC.

For a f-35 b with 6 ton fuel and single engine but a powerful one the CR is 935 km clean. For f-35 a,c with 8 ton fuel CR is 1200 km. So for AMCA with 6.5 ton and twin engine we might end up with 1000 km range. GE engines are supposed to be more fuel efficient than Russian one
