    Can we integrate SDB and increase the efficiency of air to ground bombing ?

    The key weapon the Jaguar will field is the CBU 105.

    Every other conventional A2G munition is nowhere near as deadly as CBU 105 if a general conventional war breaks out

    So even if we replace these radars, it only effects 10 fighters.

    Currently operating only half the combat aircraft required and only half of that half are relatively modern.

    Went fuss long back.

    Many opportunities to save it but attempted indigenisation sealed the fate.

    An SDB quadrack would occupy the centerline station, which then leaves no station for LDPs.
    It's simply an old fighter and we shouldn't waste too much money on it anymore. We have seen the huge waste of money of IN, when they upgraded outdated Harriers with radar and missiles, just to phase out the fighters shortly afterwards. Same case of upgraded Mig 27, which were useless, since engine problems kept them grounded most of the time.

    This radar should have about 300-350 T/R modules.

    @Agent_47

    Didn't you once posted a video from Aero India I belive, that stated a figure for TR modules of Uttam AESA ? Uttam is aimed on LCA nose diameter, which could give us a hint where a Jaguar falls in comparison with a smaller nose.

    What's the time frame to upgrade all Jaguars to Darin standard?

    Given the sticky situation with Chinese n Pakistan, will they move up time frame?

    It is estimated that the jaguars will be updated in the next 2-3 years.

    Around 123 Jaguars being upgraded to DARIN III.

    May take a few more years as HAL is the doing the job.
