NEW DELHI: Lauding DRDO for successfully delivering indigenous weapon systems, IAF chief RKS Bhadauria on Tuesday said that the defence research agency should make the indigenous fifth-generation fighter aircraft happen and it must succeed.

"The Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) must succeed and it needs a lot of attention... it has taken off, it is a DRDO project. In terms of technology, this is one project where DRDO must make it happen," the IAF chief said while addressing the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Director's Conference.

Asserting that the Indian Air Force wants to control the technology and other aspects of the programme, he said, "I am defining the technology of AMCA because it is where we lack. When we take a system from abroad, we get restricted by the technology and weapon available and there is a 10-year cycle if we have to change it. In AMCA, we want to have control."

"We will improve the technologies as we move on. We will ensure that we will maintain an edge," the IAF chief said.

Bhadauria has already made it clear that the IAF will fully back the indigenous fifth-generation fighter aircraft project being developed by the DRDO.

The IAF chief highlighted successful DRDO projects like the LCA Tejas plane and the INDRA radar.

"That is the first time a low-level radar (INDRA) was developed and we were able to utilise it on our critical areas and have a decent low-level pickup. In terms of technology, it was a hugely successful project," he said.

The IAF chief termed the indigenous Airborne Early Warning and Control aircraft developed by DRDO as another major success for the service.

"It is a huge success, we are looking forward for further development of it. The advantage of indigenous technology is that we are in continuous dialogue and change the specifications and requirements as we go along and get higher performance," Bhadauria said.

well I have 0 doubt in capabilities of Indian scientists. I heard some time ago that they also found traces of gold in gow mutra. Well imo, Indian scientists should think out of box and get away from conventional western science. The bases of next gen fighter should be the holy cow, just imagine the possibilities. If the outer body/structure of aircraft is layered with gow gobar, not only will it go fast, it will be undetectable by radars. You can fly plane even in nuclear zone.


Abbey cho___ these things require money. You aint going nowhere fkin 70 billion as you military budget of which majority goes into service payments, pensions and equipment up-gradation and management. Just look at the cost for any fifth gen fighter and that too is a whole long process. By the time you will complete your fifth gen fighter the world would have moved to 7th or 8th gen. Phir uss time rootay rehna ' k hamaray pass ye hota tou yeh ho jaata'

India definitely have a track record of making successful weaponry like LCA and Arjun. Its neighbors like Pakistan are much safer with the Indian version of success. But shouldnt India learn how to buy a plane first such as Rafale. How confident is India in building a 5th gen plane when it cant even properly buy a 4th gen plane???
