Are these parts of the actual aircraft or parts related to the manufacturing facility?

Apparently from someone in HAL, that is a part of the leading edge slat.

Confirmed by DRDO on Twitter now


Based on the design by ADA & DRDO, the fabrication of Leading edge of AMCA initiated at HAL with special material for 5th gen design. The unit will undergo structural & other testing before putting it on the first prototype. An imp milestone for AMCA.

Since AMCA MK1 won't have internal weapons bay can we use enclosed weapons pod like the ones used in Super Hornet BLK 3 to reduce RCS?

Almost every report says it will have an internal weapons bay. Even the models displayed in Aero India 2021 showed them.

The AMCA seems more similar to Lockheed Martin’s F-35 jet than to Russia’s Su-57 jet or China’s J-20 jet, in that it’s designed as a role-flexible fighter capable of executing a wide range of missions depending on loadout.
Indian airforce will not even touch the aircraft like J 20. Magazine has rightly analyzed that It is not like Su 57 or J20. However, Su 57 is far far better than J20 and most maneuverable aircraft ever built.

Jack Of All, Master Of None was specifically said for Indians i think. Why can't you guys just focus on one thing, complete it and take on another task instead of making such tall claims?

It is claimed US magazine not by India. Our recognition comes from most recognized sources. We don't claim like" J20 is F22 killer" etc. while workd do not recognize it.

Only five nations in the world can make from scratch a turbofan capable to power and fit a jet fighter, the US, UK, France, Russia and China.
You simply cannot pledge to make your 'own' stealth fighter if you can't make the power plant i.e. the most important part of any such project.
This is why many sideline the Gripen, although a great aircraft but with a US engine, so prone to sanctions and not truly Swedish.
the engine is the most important part of a stealth plane ?
thats a reach.
Though India has no chance of making a proper stealth plane in the next 10 years , i mean American proven stealth , not Russian or Chinese stealth. Even the Europeans with their expertise in engines have no stealth plane.
