What did he say?
Thats not the case.
We believed once FOC is achieved on Jan 4 2019, from BR member Dilleep
That means every thing right.
HAL has got everything in its hands to ramp up the production . 8+4+8 per year.
Finally a chance retire and replace old aircrafts..
Now all that is post poned.
Initially it was said that they need 10 refueling to meet the successful standard s.
Now seems there are problems.
Moreover Engines for mk1A is not selected yet !
If they have ordered for Elta 2052 AESA radar and avionics then why not engines? Both things are equally important.
Possible and seems logical too. Else we will have 4 trainers of different kind and another 4 of different.Some one is saying in BRF that 4 trainers will be in FOC form against planned in IOC
SP11 and SP12 are flying but hasn't yet been delivered to IAF, may be the ceremony will see the handing over of these 2 airframes too to No45.
Next project will MK1A or Su 30 UPG for IAF ?
How many twist s and turns ..
