As presented by Dr Girish Deodhare- Tejas Mk2 (MWF) first prototype planned to be rolled out by July 2022. First flight by early 2023. This is the most eagerly awaited fighter as far as I'm personally concerned. Set to form sizeable bulk of IAF fleet.

I think new pilots will get easily habitual to this. I can sense how strange this must be for you Smiling face with open mouth and smiling eyes. I have never flown anything but it was weird for me as well during the Expo.

The private JV they are planning for AMCA, they should do it first for MWF. Only then we can order it in bulk to make it the backbone of IAF for next couple of decades.

If MWF/AMCA is offered as a combo deal you will see all the private sector biggies falling over each other to grab the contract. We can do a e-auction to get maximum investment.

I wanted private firms involved right from the LAC 1 stage ... they are in a matter of speaking if they are making sub-assemblies but what I wanted was the 2nd line fully handed over to private player on lease.
