    This is funny. So you think that people should take the 'fact' that the Israeli MoD even want it on your word out of good faith? Or do you have any proof you can 'share' with us plebeians.

    At first, I always found the LSA unrealistic, not because the project is workable, but because there are too many lobbies in the govt and even internationally who are capable of stamping out the project before inception. All the countries Vstol proposed to buy the LSA's avionics from have a competing product, so they will do their utmost to not support it, even deliberately delay it.

    Now I am more optimistic because the Israelis are involved. They are no threat to the LSA as a competitor and in fact will completely support is because they have to replace 300+ F-16s with a cheap alternative, an alternative that they don't have and the LSA perfectly fits in while also completely surpassing the capabilities of the F-16. And of course, at a very reasonably low cost.

    In fact Isrealis want an aircraft which does not come under US certification. F-35 will be very heavily under the control of USA. If you read local press of Israel, there is a big demand within Israel to restart their own fighter program to overcome the US pressure.

    The Dassault family is Jewish, and it is with the Mirage 3 that Israel has the most easily won the war.

    Mirage IIICJ in Israeli Air Force museum (13 victory markings)
    The Israeli Air Force (IAF) purchased three variants of the Mirage III:[8]

    • 70 Mirage IIICJ single-seat fighters, received between April 1962 and July 1964.
    • Two Mirage IIIRJ single-seat photo-reconnaissance aircraft, received in March 1964.
    • Four Mirage IIIBJ two-seat combat trainers, three received in 1966 and one in 1968.
    Israel was forced into updating its own Mirages when France imposed an arms embargo on the region after the 1967 Six Day War. The result was Israel Aircraft Industries' IAI Nesher, based on the Mirage 5. Nevertheless, Mirage IIIB upgrades up to and including a full Kfir-type conversion are also available from IAI.[8]

    Ur aircraft is doomed unless u can secure a hefty production contract and start production before this govt. goes. Under a congress govt. ur aircraft will never c the light of the day. And the financial route this govt. is taking, lowering PF interest rates, bank interest rates, keeping oil prices high even if they r bloody cheap on international market, they r alienating the working middle class that largely voted for them. So, it will take a miracle for them to return to power if this financial policy is to continue. I am telling this after listening to the grunts of many middle class ppl who were all up for Modi in 2014.

    So, I advise you as a well-wisher to close the deal of LSA b4 2019 or else u could c ur ac go the lca path, not due technical hurdles, but due to foreign lobbies and govt red tapes. And I'm being extremely realistic here.
