Re: Poor IAF role in R&D, manufacture - HAL/IAF tiffs to bla

The Indian Navy has a Directorate of Indigenisation! Just read below and see how much more forward thinking the Navy is from the IAF! http://indiannavy.nic.in/naval-commands/directorate-indigenisation Directorate of Indigenisation INDIGENOUS PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT – A GUIDE Product development is a hig...

Re: Poor IAF role in R&D, manufacture - HAL/IAF tiffs to bla

Why indirect pressure? Why not direct pressure? IAF must be forced to order 300 Tejas MK2. IAF doesn't trust the Project Management of HAL/ADA? They should contribute their own PM folks. IAF doesn't trust the Engineering of HAL/ADA? They should contribute their own Engineering folks. IAF doesn't hav...

Re: LCA Tejas: News and Discussions

For those people putting the blame on HAL for not ramping up LCA production:

Number of confirmed orders for Tejas MK1 = 40 (20 IOC-2 + 20 FOC)
Number of confirmed orders for Tejas MK2 = 0

Why would HAL invest money to ramp up production to 16 a year and then be idle after 3 years?

Re: LCA Tejas: News and Discussions

We've heard these vague promises before. AKA also said that the 14 remaining squadrons of Mig-21/Mig-27 would be replaced by LCA. Yet, here we are. Keeping in mind that all the previous Mig-21/Mig-27 squadrons have been converted to Su-30 MKI, the talk of IAF needing a "lighter type of single-e...

Re: LCA Tejas: News and Discussions

@Pratyush - Tejas MK2 will have to compete for orders against FGFA and you know which aircraft the IAF will choose. It's clear what the IAF wants, and it's not the LCA, or the AMCA for that matter. @rohitvats - I am not abusing the IAF - I am just stating the obvious. I found BRF in 2001 when search...

Re: LCA Tejas: News and Discussions

If the news of 144 Rafale (36 flyaway + 108 HAL built) is true, then IAF plans to replace the 14 squadrons of Mig-21/Mig-27 with 8 squadrons of Rafale + 6 squadrons of LCA (40 MK1 + 80 MK2). There will be no chance of any further orders for Tejas as the 6 squadrons of Jaguar and the 6 squadrons of M...

Re: Caucasus Crisis

Interesting article on the lack of Russia's preparedness. Russian military officials, in writings there that are catching U.S. analysts' attention, are concluding that Russia's offensive into Georgia was morally justified but poorly organized and executed in the opening phases due to surprise.

Re: Indian Military Aviation

HAL had teamed up with IAI for avionics, marketing and product support for Dhruv. Elbit is a completely different company, and probably competed by offering to sell some more upgraded SA-330 Pumas that Ecuador had previously bought from them. I think they are manufactured in Romania by Elbit in coll...

The same reason that M311, M346, Mig-AT, Yak-130, T-50 and Javelin are on display - because the jet trainer market is very hot right now! A lot of airforces have recently purchased modern fighters and are looking for modern trainers. We should be thankful that HAL is actually trying to market it's p...
