    The prototype is powered by SNECMA but the intended engine for production aircraft is Saturn AL-55I.

    According to wiki:

    Engine

    The prototype aircraft are powered by a Snecma Larzac 04-H-20 turbofan non-afterburning engine developing 14.12 kN. The production models will fly with the more powerful Saturn AL-55I engine with about 16.9 kN of thrust (thrust-to-weight ratio of 5.59) as the new air staff requirements opted in 2005 by the Indian Air Force, stipulated a new and more powerful engine.

    The AL-55I engine arrived from Russia on 28 December 2008. The aircraft made its maiden flight with Russian AL-55I engine on 9 May 2009.

    BTW it has 5 X hardpoints with up to 1,000 kg (2,200 lb) of a variety of guns, bombs, rockets, and missiles

    1 × 23 mm cannon (optional)

    This can be used as a fighter for minor missions, as the cost/flying hours is less

    it same class as chinese L-15. Between the hardpoints and cannons are to train poilots to release bombs and fire guns but not for offensive use.
