Assuming that the previous poster had the same/similar reasoning.
It is strange because if HAL can build Su-30s in vastly greater numbers than 4 per year from raw materials, there shouldn't be any problem with HAL ramping up production of LCA
That is a very valid conclusion, especially when we all know that the MKI came with a "ToT".
What is the reality?
How much of that experience is allowed to be used in other efforts? (Asking)
How much of what is allowed has been absorbed? (Asking)
How much of what is absorbed can be migrated to an old project like the LCA? (asking)
Can such foreign production methods be easily implemented in an on-going project, like the LCA? (asking)
Etc, etc, etc.
Someone with info on this subject matter needs to pipe in.
That is one thing.
Secondly they have the ability to ramp up to 16 planes a year. I am sure we *all* would love to have 16 LCAs a year (I would like 32, in five years they are done and then have two lines of MK-II, for 64 per year, after which those lines could be re-tooled for the AMCA - "You wish") starting today and continuing for a decade.
