Once in a while a reset button is pressed and the old world order dies and a new world order is born. World War II is a good example. ChinaVirus is probably one of those reset buttons.

I personally wouldn't like any new name for MWF.
Tejas-1 (Will be upgraded to Tejas-2)
Tejas-2 (This should be the name for Mark 1A)
Tejas-3 (MWF)
Tejas-4 (AMCA)
Tejas-5 (TEDBF)
