    Have you been in touch with them already?

    Also to be very honest all you are saying sound very good and logical. But the problem is things still take time and unknown problems to creep up.
    For what its worth i would like your project becomes a reality but also understand the skepticism around

    I have not contacted them yet. Let me first complete a very thorough and exhaustive CFD analysis of LSA using a company which specialises in such work. I have short listed one such company and we are in talks to start the job by third week of feb 2017 with end May as completion date. Once I start that job, I will approach German Ambassador in Delhi to get EFT consortium on board as they are headquartered in Germany.
    Skepticism & ridicule is fodder for me. It fires me up and keeps me going and working hard to make LSA a reality.

    You're right. It takes 10 years more or less.

    Pls take care of not exposing the critical design details, and who knows chinese are keeping eyes and noting all the details.

    I am aware of it and shown only some old designs and not the final design and also hidden the very crucial internal design of the aircraft secret.

    If you design succeeded , there will be surely a Chinese clone aka JSA definitely with the launching customer Pakistan.

    It appears as if the Navy wants a ready fighter. And not a concept .

    LSA will be as ready as Sea Gripen when we respond to RFI and being an Indian designed, developed and manufactured stealth aircraft, it will bring to table unprecedented capabilities which none of the aircraft on offer can promise. The limitations of Lifts of Vikky and IAC-1 have made the job of LSA easy compared to anyother fighter. Sea Gripen will have further increase in weight of about 500kgs which will reduce its load from STOBAR carriers below 4.5 tons while LSA can shoot off with nearly 6.25 tons of load. Please remember that LSA will use 108KN thrust engine while Sea Gripen is stuck with 98KN engine.

    It is somehow possible to make a real size mock-up. Psychology could change when they see a real life like futuristic plane and might realize that this is real and can have a future, even for export. My apologizes, how much time do u need to make a prototype? With how much money?

    My original idea was to use the avionics architecture developed for LCA and some systems from Jaguar for LSA and for that I needed just INR 1700crores but now I will have to go for Typhoon architecture and therefore the cost will go up and become nearly INR3000crores for one trainer and two fighter prototypes.
    I have 3D digital mock up ready with me for major systems and weapons integrated.

    I'm just brainstorming with you, will a sturdy carbon fibre mock up with real avionics installed, either from France or Euro. Just to give it a real feel. You can even ask these agencies to partner up for showcase for a chance of sales?

    My apologise, i m not as smart as u are.
