    A full mission simulator...nice, this is something that STILL doesn't exist for the Su-30MKI to this day.

    Hopefully ADA can also create a 360' moving full mission simulator in the near future.

    as the improved kaveri engine will be of 100 kn then can CFT be added so as to free the hardpoints & add the required range ?

    Mk1A design will not allow CFT but you can wait for mk2 until the design will get freezed

    LCA 2 & 6 slots have a 800kg carrying capacity.
    Rafale is shown carrying triple launchers
    - Astra BVRAAM has a weight of 154kg, Meteor 185kg, Pylon-5 120kg, Mica 112kg.

    Surely a triple launcher pylon on LCA, like shown above in Rafale, on slot 2 & 6 can carry 3Qty Gen5 BVRAAM - this can be a great boost for LCA interceptor profile.

    The implications for LCA Interceptor profile on Indian soil, can mean it can carry & discharge 8Qty BVRAAM, with future GaN Aesa, it could mean, all whats required for interceptor role.

    HAL, ADA, MOD anyone listening???

    That to me is a joke, is LCA developed from inception based on IAF written requirements? Answer be No. LCA was purely build on light GNAT Indian experience of old times.
    To not maximise LCA interceptor profile capabilities (which be its primary role) is self defeating development endeavour.

    Some plane is being tested continuously past week from the HAL test centre in Bangalore. Earlier it used to to be a maximum of twice a day. Nowadays, am hearing it almost once every couple of hours during the day.

    We don't even have an MK1A yet, so forget about MK2. If it's LCA, it probably can only be IOC or FOC versions of the MK1.
