Re: 'Make in India' Single engined fighter

^ Looks like F-16 will win but I hope any contract is delayed for another dozen or more years.

Instead we should increase LCA production. There is no reason for HAL to limit itself to produce only 16 LCA a year.

IMO, F-35 would be a great choice for IAF. Really no point getting a 4th gen fighter when a 5th gen is available at a lower price.
