    What an absolutely stunning machine! The two seaters really do steal the show.

    We just bought a foreign one, because the indigenous design was not suitable, so don't expect any changes there anytime soon.

    Yup, you're right.
    We're using Cobham's QUARTZ RADOME which replaces DRDO's VTR (Variable Thickness Radome).

    I don't know whether there is any development going on for QUARTZ RADOME.

    ADA is the nodal agency for the development of LCA project, and is a part of DRDO, which compremises of various Labs around the country working on Research and Development and HAL is the Chief Partner in the LCA project. ADA did the great job, but all IOC, FOC project should be lead by the HAL, who got the expertize for not only for such work, but also for the testing, validation, and Maintenance and MRO job work.
    There have been some studies and development by NAL, but it's not only the material, but also the design which is critical for the superior performance of the MMRCA for the range of frequency for the operation.

    I heard something weird about LCA , it may be rumours that developers are now planning to put 2 Engines on LCA and they are searching for one who can do this in very less duration.

    If this is 10% true, than I have some feelings that they are trying to rope in Dassault in this project to put Mirage 4000 soul in LCA Tejas.
