Lol your Tejas MK-2 will roll out as soon as possible in 2028, you're expecting your Tejas MK-1A will have first flight in 2023 so how its possible that MK-2 will roll out before MK-1A ?? can you explain it to me???
How is this an Indian plane as they even rely on American engineers to install them. Indians need to learn how to install them. If they run into issues, they can call tech support. Which should be located inside India anyway.
All new engines are installed by OEM for first time.wait what? are you serious? indians can't even install an engine on baby tejas? are you kidding me?
uhm...but tejas baby has been using the f414s for a while...but whatever...All new engines are installed by OEM for first time.
For example US engineers installed GE F414 on the first Saab Gripen NG.
Similarly installing of GE F404 on first KAI T-50 also done by US engineers.
