This will replace both the Jaguar & the Mig29 once indiction starts in 2027 -2028
too early for first flight, reasonable time frame for first flight of mark-2 will be in 2026-2027, because you have redesign whole jet from beginning, its unrelated to tejas development

India likes to create graphics rendering of non-existent platforms, plant fake dates next to them, instill magical powers to these renderings and declare as operational and the war is won..

more of the same is expected here.

They better find the market before production of these planes. Because its very hard to sell this plane to 3rd party having too many foreign parts and too many foreign countries involve. Engine is from US and US is not easy partner to deal with when comes to 3rd party buyers.
