Demolishing Some LCA Tejas Falsehoods

Some mistakes.

-FOC version won’t have AESA either. The AESA version will be ready for induction only after 2021.
-Kaveri uses imported turbine blades for now.
-There was some ego-stroking with respect to comparing LCA with far more advanced programs like the Typhoon which, unlike LCA, faced funding issues more than technical hurdles.
-The only modifications IAF asked for was the introduction of HMD and R-73 combo, nothing else, for the Mk1. And ADA also overreached themselves which led to major delays, let’s not forget that.

Overall a very well written article. Let’s not miss the forest for the trees, the article is bang on with regards to what the author was trying to convey.
