Kaveri engine To Udne Se Raha. To HAL ne socha uska starter hi GE404/414 main Fit Kar diya Jaaye.....😁😁😂😂

By the way it's just a starter to start the turbofan engines....
I heard a tender by GOI to establish a testing facility upto 130 kn turbofan engine.
What is current status of program??
Can any one has knowledge about it??
Thanks in advance.

Have a question. Rafale M used M88 with a max of 75Kn engine on them. IN wants to have a twin engine fighter. Is it possible to use Kaveri engine on our naval fighter seeing it's capable of 81KN though there are issues of sustaining at long. We can software tune it to max of 75KN then we can have an Rafale M equivalent for IN. Is it possible? Or K9 isn't enough to power our next Naval twin engine fighter?

Possible. But a fighter needs sustained afterburner capability.

Kaveri has FADEC system. It is possible to do that.

TWR matters more than raw power at times.
