Well we could have bought the tornadoes sadly we never did. The mig 27 were truly junk. Jaguar is quite a good aircraft though. It's superior to the su25 and the Nanchang q5 and can use American and western munitions. On top of that it can do DPS,Anti armour missions as well as anti-ship roles which the former aircrafts can't.. On top of that it can do dedicated CAS missions like the a-10,frogfoot and the Q5. The adour engines are still reliable and cheap to maintain. If DRDO and HAL can they should redesign and modernise the airframe and produce a newer variant of Jaguar than can be used by the airforce to give air support..A cheap aircraft with similar flight characteristics of the Jaguar with more advanced electronics and better manufacturing processes. It will be an export hit too for countries in SEA,Africa and South America. Who need a good ground attack aircraft with decent air to air capability. But the Tejas can also do those things..
Can the Tejas Match the Jaguar in low level flights
