Supa Dupa plane that has not left drawing board

JF-17

135 produced so far.

In service with 9 PAF squadrons
Nigerian Air Force
Myanmar Air Force
Possible Azeri Air Force

Launched strikes against Indian Targets

Shot down Iranian drone

Maybe you chaps should celebrate when/if the damn thing flies!?


So you never wanted MIG-29? Or the engines that produce 50% reliability on SU-30MKI and 30% reliability on MIG-29K?
we had no option then to counter your F 16s and for the navy it came as a package

l
your suppose to have 130.in service it's been 11 years since you inducted the first one.
that's only 12 a year

your block 3 is taking 4 years to deliver 2025

we built 170 su30 mki in India in 12 years so no big deal and brought 100 from.russia

tejas entered service 4 years ago
and on one assembly 'line
and we have 20 in service
second is up.and we build next 20.in 3 years,easy
after this 3rd assembly built we deliver 16 tejas mark1a per year by 2028 or 2029.
that 123 tejas in 12 or 13 years,

almost identical.to thunders but slower than su30mki.

we have no problem.in delivery
we deliver 300 dhruv helicopters,in ten years
we built 15 warships in 15 years,
it's called production scaling up

Type all you like, best to make comparisons when MK1A actually exists no?

As ever, you prenote everything with "we will", while PAF can say "we have".

Not in 2025 but already started its production, in 2025 we will end the production of block-3, block-3 project was started in 2017, and as your MK1A project started in 2018/19 it will reach the production status most probably in 2023/24
do they have this so called 1a version prototype rdy yet?

They need to have it now to be able to meet the 23/24 deadline, improved block also needs a several years test flight.
but they are superpower they don't need testing, and they are saying that they have operational Tejas MK1 they install AESA and other latest avionics of MK-1A to MK-1 and current MK-1 will become MK-1A
