Indian Air Force sets deadlines for 5 generation fighter program

25
Any information on the steps to develop a fifth-generation fighter in one country or another provokes a zealous reaction in India. So, against the backdrop of the demonstration in Seoul of a full-size prototype of the KF-X fighter, New Delhi was once again called to intensify work under the AMCA program.


Indian Air Force sets deadlines for 5 generation fighter program


A few days ago, the head of the Indian Air Force headquarters, Marshal Rocket Bhadauria, announced that India would not soon buy the 5 generation fighter abroad, because "it would soon be created by itself."

During the conference, which took place the day before, Marshal aviation Bhaduria called on the Indian Defense Research Agency (DRDO) to ensure the creation of such an aircraft.

From the statement of the Indian marshal:

The AMCA program should be successful, but more attention needs to be paid to ultimately flying our own fifth-generation fighter into the sky. This is a major project that our defense research agency should achieve.

According to Rakesh Bhadauria, India must "improve its own technologies to provide an advantage." The chief of staff of the Indian Air Force also noted that today there is “not enough” of its own technologies for creating the fighter of the 5 generation of India, but “over the course of 10 years, everything should change, including the technology of the latest weapons.” Deadlines set.

Further, the Indian Air Marshal cited the Indian development of the Tejas fighter as an example and encouraged DRDO to “build on success in the aircraft industry.”

If we return to the words of the Indian military official about the 10-year period during which “everything should change” regarding the technology of the fifth-generation fighter, we can say that the AMCA project in India will not be realized before the 2030 year. Initially, such a time frame was drawn in the DRDO itself, however, experts are inclined to believe that without cooperation, their 5 generation fighter in the Indian Air Force will appear at best by the 2035 year, which will indicate a clear lag behind China itself.

    without cooperation, its fifth generation fighter in the Indian Air Force will appear at best by 5, which will indicate a clear lag behind China itself
    In China, by then there will be more than one hundred J-20 in service. The Indians are unlikely to catch up with him.

      by then, in China, the J-20s will have been decommissioned ...

      China does not advertise particularly new developments, by the thirtieth year they will surely have a new aircraft. Surely they are working on it now, but this is simply not known.

      It's bad that they can't agree with ours. And on the American "needle" in some directions firmly "hooked".

    "Because she will soon create it herself" is the funniest news of the last week. The author, you + for making me laugh in the morning.

      Yeah, the super marshal’s joke was a success. Is he interested in any engineering education or is he a drillman? Although, perhaps behind this optimism, hides the anticipation of the budget dribble of money at an accelerated pace. It is said - to pay more attention, that is, not to spare money.

    Deadlines set.

    As delivered, and can be moved, business something! Do we not know?
    ... however, experts are inclined to believe that without cooperation, their 5th generation fighter in the Indian Air Force will appear at best by 2035,

    Duc, there was already cooperation. Sense something?

      The problem is gouging. This is so historically. No one takes Hindus seriously in military affairs.
      The Chinese are now perceived, mainly because of their ideology. Correct ideology, backed by a high standard of living and a lot of money works wonders.
      And the Indians still can not do the same

        The Chinese have an excellent circus, and the Indians ... they dance and sing funny / fervently and they have Bollywood .... not for everyone, of course, but there are many fans to throw a tear and watch "dancing on rose petals".

    10 years. Cool. Having nothing of its own, without even mastering the production of the Su30mki to the end ... 10 years it takes this from the countries that themselves created and produced the 4th generation.

      They have one airplane of their own, though it wasn’t enough to launch it in a series of thirty years.

        That is ... but it needs to be brought to the series. And turbojet engines are not exactly them.

          I suspect something that he may not live up to the series. A plane that in combat capabilities barely exceeds the modernized Mig-21 is directly what the Indian Air Force needs in the twenty-first century.

                There was an article on how Grippen gouged Su 27 of the People’s Republic of China in training battles with Tai Chi

                  I read, but here the question is how the exercises were carried out and whether they were at all or not. Under certain conditions, and instantly 15 will bring down the Su-27. But in life it is difficult. Yes, and influenza if you think it will still be better, it will be released and constantly modernized.

    There are several non-stop shows in the world. For example: Russian interference in the US elections, the Saltsbury poisoning, the "war" with Ukraine. One of these shows is India's purchase of fighters. And I confess honestly, this gypsy circus is pretty tired. I want to wish Rosoboronexport patience))))

    Nobody, of course, will seriously believe in these "Wishlist". This is just another way of putting pressure on Russia first of all. The Indians, on the other hand, do not buy ready-made weapons in principle, they, along with advanced technology, provide technology and production documentation. Fighter of the 5th generation - this is the highest technology, and no one is going to share such technologies with India, this is not a tank factory to buy (although there are difficulties there too). And the Indians themselves are still weak in this. It looks like India will have to reconsider its principles and buy ready-made aircraft. Otherwise they will be beaten by "unprincipled" Pakistanis and Chinese.
