THIS. I've been saying it forever.... It will be a perfect interim fighter until the AMCA comes along. And should work for the Navy as well. Not at all sure the MWF will work for naval ops. They might even be able to do a twin engined bird with kaveris instead of the 414. IAF wants single engine fi...
