    Sorry , my mistake .... The Cockpit is built by HALBIT ... a JV of HAL and Elbit

    So in a way we are both correct :p

    For the DARIN-3 upgrade programme (which was approved in 2008), an initial 58 single-seat Jaguar IS aircraft will be subjected to a ‘deep upgrade’ by HALBIT Avionics along with HAL’s Mission & Combat System Research & Design Centre (MCSRDC), Overhaul Division, and the IAF’s Aircraft & Systems Testing Establishment (ASTE) and Software Development Institute (SDI). The first prototype of the DARIN 3-standard Jaguar IS took to the skies on November 28, 2012. Each DARIN 3-standard Jaguar IS will be fitted between 2014 and 2017 with ELTA-supplied EL/M-2032 multi-mode pulse-Doppler radar, HAL-Edgewood’s OSAMC core avionics computer, Elbit Systems’ Targo HMDS, EL/M-8022 jammer, BDL-built CMDS, SaabTech’s RWRs and LWRs, EADS/Cassidian’s MILDS-F MAWS, and Raytheon-supplied munitions control unit (MCU) for making the aircraft’s weapons management system compatible with the 15 different types of munitions that have been specified by the IAF. Following this, the IAF’s seven DARIN 1-standard Jaguar IMs too will be retrofitted with DARIN 3-standard avionics.

    Jags need new engines. I was hopeful with a kaveri variant, but atleast it should get the honeywell powerplant.

    It's weird that that deal simply vanished into thin air and neither side seems to be pursueing it anymore.

    The Kaveri would have to be massively downgraded to fit onto the Jag, the HTFE-25 could be an option but it won't be ready for some time and isn't designed with reheat as of now.

    Lol, just that the EF beats the Jag hands down in A2G, so it just confirms my point, that it's ironic that the fighter that has the least use of the technology, got it first.
