    Exactly sir,

    I have argued many time that if we are able to make LCA MK2 as they said (6.15 ton weight and 3400 KG fuel with 5 ton weight carrying), it can relieve MMRCA from many roles they performe. Make a nice Mk2 with EJ 230 and keep weight bellow 6.2 tons and it shall be an @$$ kicker.

    60 KN dry in total with 2 engine? Will not it be too low for a 7 ton weight class plane?

    The original design needed this thrust. The final design needs minimum 72Kn dry and 108KN wet.

    Will it be sufficiently agile with 72 KN dry? Particular when it has a huge internal fuel?

    Bro, I am really bored of answering the same questions over and over again. I told you long back, multiply the Dry thrust with a factor of 2.5 and you get the MTOW. so (72000/9.81)x2.5=18348 kgs. 7+7+4.5=18.5tons. I hope you won't ask me this question again.

    I have repeatedly told you, Let IN do what they want to. MSA falls under IDDM and once the first TD is ready and flown, many options will just disappear. As on date, MSA is a paper plane. And is the truth about MSA.

    All the foreign aircraft have to go through a long tender process for 57 flyaway jets. And MII has only been given as a possibility.

    So even if a contract is signed by 2021 before the first TD/prototype of the MSA is ready, the navy can stop at 57 jets and initiate MII for MSA.

    @vstol jockey i really respect your hardwork & research, i go through thread. But million dollar question is when MSA will become reality? at what stage it reached in terms of procurement or any finalization level, or it is just on IDF and we all are discussing it here only. i want you to success in your mission and hardwork best of luck from my side. thankyou
