From Tejas to 5th-gen jets, IAF pitches for desi fighters



NEW DELHI: In a strong push for indigenisation, the IAF has put its full weight behind the development of a home-grown fifth-generation fighter aircraft (FGFA) as well as shown its readiness to go in for 200 Tejas Mark-II light combat aircraft after inducting the first 123 Mark-I jets.

新德里:印度空军大力推动本土化制造,全力支持本土第五代战斗机(FGFA)的发展,在首批123架“光辉”Mark-I战斗机服役后,印度空军准备采购200架“光辉” Mark-II轻型战斗机。

“We have no plans for importing a FGFA. The indigenous AMCA (advanced medium combat aircraft) has already been initiated…We are putting all our energy into it. IAF remains committed to indigenous development in consonance with the PM’s 'Make in India’ initiative,” said Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria, who took over as the chief on September 30.


India had last year formally junked the proposed multi-billion dollar joint development and production of the FGFA called Sukhoi T-50 or PAK-FA with Russia on the grounds of economic and technical viability despite having completed the $295 million preliminary design contract inked in December 2010, as was then reported by TOI.

去年印度以经济和技术可行性为由,正式放弃了与俄罗斯联合开发和生产苏 T-50或PAK-FA的第五代战机项目

Now, the IAF’s full focus is on the futuristic twin-engine AMCA, with advanced stealth, multi-sensor integration and supercruise capabilities, to be developed in collaboration with DRDO, Aeronautical Development Agency and Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL). “The swing-role AMCA prototype should roll out of the hanger by 2024-2025, with the first test flight one to two years after that,” said a source.

IAF should plan for 7th Generation now. 5th Gen is getting old already. If they start planning now, it will be become operational in 2040 and then it will be obsolete.

India should first of all secure the tech to manufacture jet engines. Without this key technology we shall always stay dependent on others.
