So you are saying that an article on a well known website that quotes the chairman of HAL ad verbatim in stating that Tejas Mk-2 will have larger wings is not sufficient proof?
So, who exactly , to whom and where has to state that wing sizes are going to be different to constitute as a sufficient proof for you?
I know that you know a hundred times more than me and I am here to learn from you, but really, can you show me these 'other reports' which actually state that Tejas Mk2 will not have wing redesign ?

I know what you meant by it originally, but what I meant to say was you know as well as I do that DRDO/HAL works in mysterious ways, besides what I am trying to say is if your perpetually unhappy customer “suggests” to you that they want bigger wings than you give them bigger wings.

I know, but seriously, what is the point in finding that source now when quotes from HAL Chairman are not enough for you.
May be I should baccha nap ADA’s chief designer to say it and then present you with some bullu prints of mk-2
