    It is single seat fighter version of N-LCA mk 1...rest i am unaware of for NP2

    As additional features, the naval version will have a leading edge vortex control surface (levcon) to reduce its forward speed for carrier landing, telescopic landing gear with high sink rate, arrester hook for deck recovery and fuel dump system for emergency deck recovery.
