    Need to know when this Program was produced !

    Still from the screen shoots

    SP -6 complete - flight testing
    SP -7 - Final Assembly
    SP -11 - Modules Assembly
    SP -14 - Modules Assembly

    Im pretty sure alot more frames are in various stages of been built , still this is a good insight

    does that mean that they have 83 engines for MK1A ?

    I have a feeling that MK1A will come with GE414 engine order for which are already in place.

    I think that's because unlike the other platforms we really can integrate anything we want with LCA.

    It can be done overtime. They are asking new changes or Mk1A.

    Obviously not. It means HAL wants orders for 250 jets so that they can increase their production rate to 24/year.

    You are taking it the wrong way.

    What it really means is the IAF is willing to invest more money into the LCA program. The only other aircraft right now with this status is MKI. So it's a pretty big improvement.

    it also means they want to keep the LCA as a multi role platform instead of point defense in its true sense.

    it would also help HAL develop in house capabilities in mating missiles from third parties with home grown platform - which would help in the AMCA platform development (mating with OEM missiles other than DRDO stuff)

    "want " yes y not ..................
    but without 83 engines for MK1A any order or increase of production will not have any induction in IAF.

    yes

    this "could" also mean that the saffran kaveri is round the corner ..............only then they can/should go & increase their production rate to 24/year
