Big thing is that it is Indian and not an Import. Its our. India Keep it up.
Though we can call it an achievement but looking back at the LCA program which started in 1980's to remove "the then" ageing Mig -21 fleet , we are certainly some 30 odd years out of race. Specially in the times when other nations are planning to work on 5.5 generation stealth fighters. Anyways it's a nudge towards what can be a a formidable indigenous defence R&D industry.
Akshay Singh Hello brother..Dnt comment widout knowing the full thing..LCA is also equipped wid Stealth...Stealth is not the name of the fighter rather its a technology..
Rishav Ghosh : I have been developing ambient intelligence sensors for a pretty decent time and thus have a pretty decent grasp over the domain thus mentioned. Kindly search wiki for the comparisons in all the fighters including our 4.5 g jet and the 5th g jets currently used by USA , RUSSIA & CHINA.Besides , the stealth your taking of has been used by various countries over the decade not to mention the B-32 used by USA against Afghanistan !
Akshay Singh Its good to know that you r having knowledge on sensors..you should know that wiki info is not always correct..Anyone can make any page in wiki they don't verify about the info..I am a active member of LCA team..I know little better than wiki..BTW on which type of sensor you have knowledge???I have worked with GMR sensors once..I hope you know the name..
Akshay Singh May be u didnt got me properly..I jst told stealth is a technology not the name of fighter..I know what USA used in Afghan war..Dat stealth technology is now gtng back dated..Nowadays it has improved a lot..
Yes, HF-24 Marut was India's first indigenous interceptor/fighter aircraft, for civilian it was Avro.
HF-24 Marut was never been civilian aircraft..Avro which was introduced for civilian was Avro-748..
Thanx for your comment, I would request u to read my coment once again and you will find the difference...u have missed the coma which seperated the subjects.
Gautam Basu Sir in your comment HF-24 Marut is the subject so giving comma means you are adding features to it..Though i am not so much good in English..I just told whatever seemed to me..
Rishav Ghosh let us put an end to it . Hope u will appreciate .
HF-24 Marut is India's first indigenous Aircraft..... not tejas
correct but it was nt supersonic
Vikas Bhatt It was meant to fly at close to Mach 2. But it had under powered engines. And after the 1974 nuclear test "Smiling buddha" international sanctions on India made it impossible to get new Engines.
Vikas Bhatt -yes it was..
Arun Kanaran- It achieved 1.7Mach..
Rishav Ghosh Well my knowledge is purely based on websites. O according to fas.org, aviatia and militaryfactory it is 1,112 KM/hr.
runs on an engine named cauvery.
The Fighter is still Under Procurement. And the Miracle Engine Shall Be Further Developed to nxt class so as to Implement it in Indian Back Bone Fighter, The Mighty Su-30 MKI.
dont misguide people Mr.Sriharsha..KAVERI engine is not yet been manufactured..Whatever manufactured has lot of thrust n noise fatigue which is never allowed in Light combat fighter aircraft..HF-24 used to run on Rolls-Royce / HAL Orpheus Mk 703 engines...LCA-Tejas runs on GE F414 engine..
well it is not the first time but it has taken a lot of time to develop a 4th generation fighter aircraft with help from israel , russia , and france. thanx to these nations.
well not the first time we have made jets earlier also
Ankush Puri -true...
Till the time all the parts are not made in Bharat, dependence on it will be a question mark?
Every country is dependent on others for any prototype..Nobody can make everything solely...
My Dear Arun Kanaran P. for your kind for information that, Tejas is first Fighter, which was made by Indian Technology and Indian Aeronautical Engineers in India. Not HF-24 Marut. and HF-24 Marut is a first Air Craft; not a Fighter. Ok My Dear So Happy Holi and JIYO DIL SE. JAI HIND
My Dear Mukesh Kumar..HF-24 Marut is the first Indian fighter-bomber aircraft..Tejas is another type of aircraft..Its full name is LIGHT COMBAT AIRCRAFT(LCA)-TEJAS..
poor weight to thrust ratio...needs engine up-gradation....
now again DRDO prove................. india is best.
n INDIA can do everything ,............
DRDO was not so much involved in LCA Tejas...limited to some particular technologies...Its design and technologies are given by Aeronautical Development Agency(ADA) and manufactured by HAL...
HF 24 is the first jet fighter , built in early 60s, participated in India Paksitan war in 1971. This was very advanced desighn fighter , but finally failed due to non availability of its required engine. Now Tejas is also suffering from required engine , presnetly India is getting under powered engine from the US , but the day US stops supplying , whole project would fail.
Very true buddy..even in India no engine is manufactured expect the Hero Honda splendor..
