The feasibility study is expected to take about 18 months,” he said.
Here feasibility study doesnt means that the work on actual project will start from the 19th month ...
Respected sir, I am not sure whether your post is the impatience of youth or cluelessness - but please watch the last 60 seconds of this 5 minute video to understand the thought processes behind such a statement. A list is made of various new technologies required and the time scale and a score of 3.5 on 10 indicates that it might be doable with India's current knowledge base.
It is quite likely that you underestimate the complexity of such a project. Having made the same mistake with the LCA I can't blame the DRDO for not wanting to making it again. It is also an indicator of how far ahead the US is - and that lead came from decades of work when Indians' were dreaming of swaraj. Please don't dumb things down so much.
