    Kaveri isn't happening.

    GE 414 is going to power it. Eurojet, AL-41 Saturn and Snecma M88 for some reason are not being considered.

    It would have been safer to choose the M88 or Eurojet since we burnt our fingers with the GE-404 during the late 90s.

    So the moving LERX arent doing the job of keeping the aircraft from having a terrible energy bleed off.

    Here is to seeing the thing fly in 2025

    Yeah, which is why HAL is still mfg it and IAF is still taking deliveries and making it participate in air shows and exercises.

    100% Indian Made, a real fighter of the future, not like some Paint Job decoration piece.
    Good Luck

    It is smart to use the same engine in both the LCA Mk II and the winner of MMRCA 2.0!
    Would not happen with the Kaveri.
