I don't believe this . If something as minor as foldable blades require 3 yrs say since 2021 to be developed , demonstrated satisfactorily & duly certified & 2 yrs later they still require 3 yrs then I really am at a loss for words .Their claim, so they know more about it. But towards end of last year the foldable wing design was in the news. So that has progressed & pending CEMILAC certification , now lets see how trials go. Navy usually are very confident about their purchases.
That still doesn't take into account why LUH has not been certified FOC . I'm guessing that's another 3+3 yrs saga beginning God knows when .
