    Thus far the MK.2 cockpit that has been shown has only ever been a slight update on current design:

    We present here an image, recollecting one of the glorious moments Tejas has experienced. This is from the practice days for Republic Day Parade 2017 over RajPath.

    Rear pilot's helmet is very close to the canopy.

    Some news : http://www.c4isrnet.com/articles/india-selects-saab-for-tejas-fighter-radar

    "India has chosen Saab to provide the active electronically scanned array radar for its Tejas Mk 1A fighter.

    "The AESA fighter radar is developed by Saab with antenna technology based on the latest technologies using Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Silicone Carbide (SiC) substrates in combination with the latest generation of exciter/receiver and processor technology, giving optimum installed performance in a dense signal environment," according to a company news release.

    In addition, Saab will provide an electronic warfare suite for the Tejas. "The heart of the suite is an electronic warfare receiver which is connected to a front end receiver and fin tip antennas inside the aircraft," Saab said. "
    not sure if its true

    @Abingdonboy @PARIKRAMA @randomradio @vstol jockey @MilSpec

    Check this out, guys.

    We knew that whichever vendor was to be selected would be supplying both an AESA-MMR as well as an EW suite...if this is true, I can't say I'm terribly excited. We won't be getting any commonality with Rafale...but GaN is interesting.

    At the time of ejection from the aircraft, his head will be parallel to the headrest and there he will have sufficient clearance.

    India did not choose yet. Saab is offering. Nowhere is it written that India has accepted the offer. (they have corrected the article) :p

    SAAB is behaving like "Maan Ya Naa Maan Main Tera Mehman".

    They somehow want their Gripen to be associated with IAF to increase its sales.

    Utter cr@p, HAL doesn't even open the bids for the MK1A radar RFP until April 1st and SAAB have already won it??!!


    WTF is wrong with these clowns? Fake news indeed.
    @Gessler @PARIKRAMA @Ankit Kumar 001 @Agent_47 @randomradio


    + I still expect the EL/M-2052 to be victorious, would be silly to have it on the DARIN III Jag but the LCA to have an entirely different AESA radar.
