Really? :blink:... they are not really planning to develop a Mirage F1 or Marut-like aircraft in the 21st century?? :crazy:

It will again end in long delays, less performance and higher cost than competitors like the T-50, T-7, Hürjet, which are in a similar class I suspect even more when the Tejas is more or less in the same class too!

Why again such a waste of resources? :hitwall:

Just letting you know. You will face a flood of Indians for that low blow on them.

Side note: hopefully, the Tejas gets angry enough to lift off from the back of the food trucks it's been hitching free rides on.

Is there a confirmed report about this HLFT? Or just an imaginative delusions of a social media poster?
There is already an ongoing prograam of a jet trainer. HAL isn’t stupid to get into another program just to get a high. They know that there is more than enough on their plate and can’t handle anymore. Unless it is very similar to Tejas or a variant of Tejas, with many systems removed to reduce the weight and complexity and an engine without afterburner.

It can very well be in the class of Hawk. Let's wait and watch. Its internal project of HAL, no such requirement from the MoD as of yet.

Internal project of HAL. Was mentioned in their annual documents too. Confirmed by the test pilots of HAL too.

HAL on their plate alone only have Tejas MK1A in fighter jet programs. AMCA, TEDBF and Tejas MK2 are under ADA/DRDO.
