    Russia prepares 5th-generation fighter for India | Defenceradar News

    Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) has completed the front-end engineering design of the Fifth Generation Fighter Aircraft (FGFA) for India’s Air Force, UAC president Mikhail Pogosyan said Friday.

    The UAC is preparing the contract on the aircraft’s full-scale development for signing, he told Arms-Tass.

    “We have completed the front end engineering design stage,” he said. “The work on the preparation of the contract on the FGFA full-scale development is now in progress,” he added.

    The FGFA development and production is a major project of Russian-Indian military-technical cooperation.

    The two sides signed the corresponding agreement in Moscow in October 2007. In December 2010, Russia’s Rosoboronexport arms exporter, Sukhoi company and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited signed a contract on the aircraft’s front end engineering design development.

    Since January 2012, a group of India’s specialists has been working in Russia, and Russia’s specialists in India. The two sides have established the required information exchange.

    FGFA is developed on the basis of the Russian PAK FA fifth-generation fighter project. However, it will differ from the prototype to meet Indian Air Force’s specific requirements.

    Nope.........according to news HAL will focus on tejas mk2 only,,,,as mk1 will be used as a LIFT platform and not as a point defence fighter.
    Also we don't have the money to spennd on tejas,rafale,pakfa and amca at the same time.

    It makes no sense

    We need to focus on one thing first................without success of mk1 there is no mk2 as mk2 is heavily derieved from mk1

    Tejas Mk2 team targets 2017 for first flight


    [​IMG]

    With Separate Project team from ADA and HAL already in place for Tejas MK-2 , MK-2 Team are targeting to carry out first flight in early 2017 as per sources close to idrw.org . under MK-2 Project HAL will roll out two Prototypes by 2016 which will be be powered by the more powerful GE-F414-INS6 engines .

    In 2013 Initial contract for 8 GE-F414-INS6 engines was awarded to Ge and GE will start delivering engines by end of 2015 and will also help in Integration of the engines with the MK-2 airframe in India for which a dedicated team will arrive from US , Currently GE team in US has carried out design reviews for integration of the engines in the MK-2 .

    MK-2 Project team also been tasked to make it more Maintenance friendly and increase operational availability of the aircrafts once it enters service with IAF. MK-2 not only will get new engines but also will get Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar , onboard oxygen-generating system; an advanced Electronic Warfare (EW) suite,Pilot friendlier cockpit display, retractable mid-air refuelling system . older PV-1 aircraft currently has been used has a Test Bed for Electronic Warfare system.

    MK-2 Project team learning from the past mistakes , will source all required systems and components to be integrated in MK-2 before actual work on first Prototypes begins so that delays can be avoided for want of one particular part from one lab. Team plans to field both test aircrafts around same time so that certification of various components are not delayed due to lack of aircrafts and also enter Production once they are certified .

    Clearly it will be a uphill task for ADA and HAL team to put together an aircraft which Internally will require lot of changes and upgradation to its current systems, but also need to certify and enter production in shortest period of time to keep the technology developed for the aircraft relevant in 2025 when IAF will induct MK-2 in large numbers

    well mk1 wont be produced in large numbers according to reports. MK2 will be the fully operational version of the plane. it makes sense to produce mk2 only in large numbers if mk1 isn't going to hv all the systems.

    Everyone knows this.....only 40 mk1 will be built and they will be used only as LIFT trainers and not as point defence fighters.
    Point is when??:devil:
