    The full power test of HTFE-25 has opened a huge opportunity for this engine for Jaguar, Hawk and LSA-Twin engine. Now I have full system architecture of Jaguar darin-3 with AESA ready for installation on LSA.

    No. HTFE-35/57.5KN twin engines. This configuration will give it better performance compared to even Rafale from STOBAR carriers. I expect the afterburner uprated version will weigh about 575kgs giving HTFE-35 a TWR of 10:1.

    Current HTFE is 25KN, is it wet thrust or dry? Does it have an afterburner right now? AL-55I which it replaces for HTJ had dry thrust of 17 or 18 KN and optional afterburner and TV nozel.

    Is this the good news Parikrama was asking about ?
    How would you opine Darin 3 system architecture compared with LCA or Mirage 2005v2 standards?

    From the outset I can think it would be cheapest of the lot.
    Any modifications planned like sensor fusion processor in mirage UPG and Rafale ?
    I am sure you had plans already or is the only architecture you get hold .?

    To compete with Rafale M , will this be adequate enough?

    So AESA radar is more or less finalised either Israeli or Indian ..coz darin3 might be compatible with these two ..?

    I hope LSA gets GaN AESA that was offered.

    No. But this news is better.

    Yeah, the plan is to have a modern avionics suite with sensor fusion.

    Nearly all European agencies which have made fighter aircraft have come together thru cross holdings in each others business. Even US companies now have cross holdings. The net result is that no aircraft program any where in the world which can up stage them will ever be supported by any company from Europe or USA. Any Program which can challenge their dominance will never be supported. They work in the same way as old East India Company. Buy or have any one who has money as your partner to ensure that you loot a target nation thru these so called Zamindaars/Sahookars.
    Last 45 days, I have been to many of the European companies which thought will support LSA. But one thing became very clear. They all know the potential of LSA and what it means to their own business. They have refused to help, starting from DA to BAE to Leonardo to Eurofighter. I am 100% sure that I will be denied even EJ-230 by Eurojet. I have to now rethink my entire strategy based on this mafia of fighter aircraft manufacturers.
    This mafia is very strongly supported by the people within the three services of India with DRDO as their ally. It has been a huge eye opener for me. The struggle is on. Victory will be mine only. Once I go thru this cartel of Mafiasos, These nations will rot in hunger and die. Yey iss Brahmin kaa shraap rahegaa in sab par.
