A welcome and expected step. They had to release WingCo Abhinandan and tried to pre-empt the 5PM conference. Some serious ball-crunching must have been done behind the scenes to get them to do it.

No/limited night-time capability?

As for rest, we don't know the calculations of IAF/GOI so we will support them, whatever they decide to do.

Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A News & Discussions: 09 February 2018

Question.

If Uttam is almost ready and can be inducted in 2 years or so and MK-1A is scheduled to fly only after 3 years from contract signing, then why are we buying Elta-2052? Why not use Uttam right from beginning?

Is it just to mitigate risk?

So, if Uttam is ready to be integrated then are we still going for 2052/RBE-2 for MK1A?

Doesn't it make sense to quickly mount Uttam on some PV/LSP and get it ready for MK1A as well?
