Re: Tejas Mk.1 & Mk.1A: News & Discussions: 23 February 2019

According to reports from AI19 Brahmos people told that NG can be carried by Tejas and I think it will be integrated after testing on Su-30MKI. So safely we can say it will be available for Tejas after a decade minimum

I think IAF should go for C-295 based 360* AWACS with Netra's Radar adopted in the rotating disc, By doing it IAF will get a low cost 360* system that can be purchased in numbers as C-295s are to be made in India soon https://img5.goodfon.com/wallpaper/nbig/b/f5/casa-c-295-airbus-military-drlo-vzlet...
