Add the RR engine in the works.Essentially very tough to import combat jets after 2024.


so it is., there is not much news about RR collaboration though ., who is going to partner with them , hope it is the private sector but most likely a public sector entity given it is likely to come with some IPR ., maybe we will know more after BJs visit to India

Testing takes years and I don't think there is even a design that one could talk about today. If they really are serious, they should go for ORCA with K9+. Unless we operate at least a fighter with our engine, we cannot get any solid development going.

Years of testing does not matter, even if 10., it will be in time for a future variant of the AMCA.

Agreed. What I was referring to was about delay in placing order for F404s and that RR engine shouldn't be a reason for that.

Are there any public sources that are feeding the pylon mounted IRST speculation?

The RR engine is for AMCA onlee. The 1As will have F404s. (MWF will have F414.) So we better get an order placed for F404s.

But can an engine order even be placed without the formal signing of the order for the 83?
