Tejas Mark 1A to be superior to PAF’s F-16 Blk 52s and JF-17 Blk 3: ADA Chief
Published December 19, 2019 |

Girish Deodhare, chief of the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) of DRDO, has confirmed that ADA and HAL were asked by IAF to develop Tejas Mark 1A with capabilities and technology which will make it superior to the entire fleet of Pakistan Air force (PAF) including F-16 Block-52 and JF-17 Block-III with five new additional capabilities. Tejas Mark 1A will be getting an AESA radar, air-to-air refueling capability, an external ECM pod, and improved avionics, aerodynamics, radar signature, ease of maintenance, etc. But Mark 1A will also be getting new and improved Digital flight control computer (DFCC) which was developed for the Mark 2 (MWF) program which significantly comes with a higher processing power thus allowing to add many more advanced capabilities in the quadruplex digital fly-by-wire Flight Control System (FCS). Due to upgraded DFCC now, Mark 1A will also be getting Smart multi-function displays, better friend or foe (IFF) system along with digital map generator and an improved radio altimeter. Mark 1A which is a stop-gap measure between Mark 1 and Mark 2 is benefiting a lot from Mark 2 program and will share not only DFCC but also many avionics and even the radar with the aircraft. Mark 1A will also be getting upgraded Weapons system and will come equipped with Israeli Derby and Indian Astra BVRAAM along with ASRAAM and supersonic BrahMos-NG air to surface missile system when it is ready among other weapons like SAAW (smart Anti-Airfield Weapon). HAL also plans to integrate more additional capabilities at regular intervals due to the advantages of working on the super-30 program at later stages.

Tejas MK1A will indeed be superior in Air to Air in comparison of F-16 BLK52 and overall superior to JF-17 BLK3, MK1A will be mated with longer range Indian/Russian and Israeli BVRs than Aim-120C5 and mated with latest generation Israeli AESA and similar to greater capabilities of Indian ECM as current Su-30MKI which dodged multiple AIM-120C5s.
In Air to Ground it will have much more weapon solutions than JF-17 BLK3.

f16 is tested fighter made by u.s who have much better technology and experience in manufacturing jets than india who are unable to develop any jet on time like tejas,this is a big unrealistic claim which is not more than a joke

wont be of much use against MK1A... chinese AESA is itself based upon ELM tech and is not superior by any means so Tejas MK1A will look first and also shoot first with Python 5 ER/Astra/R-77 ER

Lol....after MKI aka the so-called Raptor of the East, now comes Tejas MK1A.....
If anything IAF needs to change the pilot's training syllabus.

Ah, I thought it was a rhetorical question since you would know the answer. However, since you seem to have innocently asked it - No, the Tejas hasn't been in a dog fight.

"Get over what?" - Get over your various losses.
I don't want to be any where near the area where a teja flown by abhinandan will take part in a dog fight. That would be a lethal combination.

MKIA is superior to any plane available on planet earth.

You can not win in arguments from a person who is not ready to admit .

So why wasting time.:cool:

Tejas MK1a or Mk2 is on drawing board while BLK3 will be inducted in the coming months. As long as it remains on board anyone can say it is superior by just changing the specs. If someone wants to do a comparison he should compare it with BLK4.

Excellent idea, compare one plane specification that exists only on paper ie Tejas MK1a with another one that exists on paper only ie JF17 Block 4.
