For now, the indian air force has just committed to 123 tejas fighter jets at the cost of rs 75,000 crore it, however, demands that the tejas mark ii jets be entirely “new fighters” with “better avionics, radars, enhanced weapons carrying capacity and powerful engines” (also read: iaf orders 83 tejas mk 1a. Official sources said the iaf is finalising a proposal to order 201 tejas mk 2 fighters to mk 2 variant, which is being developed by hindustan aeronautics limited (hal) and the state-run aeronautical development agency (ada), will be fitted with the more powerful general electric f414-ge-ins6 engine,. The iaf is looking at 83 'mark1-a', with 59 improvements over the existing tejas the indian air force has projected a need for 324 fighter jets over 15 years and has officially indicated that it needs the 'tejas mark 2' (medium combat aircraft) it will carry a more powerful engine and weigh almost 20 per cent. One of the main characteristics for a 5th generation fighter would be stealth and tejas mk2 wouldn't have any stealth features more over with future now coming to the required aircraft ie the tejas mk-2 which is a redesigned version of the earlier tejas mk-1 based on a more powerful engine for tejas mk-2 to be a fifth. Tejas mk2 aimed to have home-developed active electrically scanned array ( aesa) radars, unified ew suites, on board oxygen generation systems and upgraded avionics featuring more powerful general electric f414-ge-ins6 engine with 98kn thrust and refined aerodynamics the mark 2 is being.
Indian air force has promised to have a total of 18 tejas fighter jet squadrons if drdo, aeronautical development agency and hindustan aeronautics limited deliver required mark ii fighter jets on time. Tejas mark 2 the tejas mark 2 is to feature the more powerful general electric f414- ge-ins6 engine with 98 kn of thrust and refined aerodynamics the mark 2 is being developed to meet the latest iaf requirements and will incorporate fifth -generation jet fighter elements which are intended to. People are just jealous of this mighty tejas it is so unique that there is no comparison in the universe for this mighty star destroyer how do you think indians beat the chinese in the recent stand off china is affraid of tejastheir j20 is a sitting duck in front of this invisible plane which can fly even.

Ada, has long proposed a tejas mk-ii with a more powerful engine than the baseline mk-i, as well as aerodynamic refinements, to address the iaf's 1995 air staff qualitative requirements (asqr) with respect to kinematic performance after all, one of the regrets for the iaf has been the fact that the mk-i.
The cag had also slammed the execution, saying that the tejas mk i was unsafe the claims that the first lca mk 2 prototype -- which will have the more powerful general electric f414-ge-ins6 engines -- will conduct its maiden test flight in 2018-19 and go into series production three years later have also. The ge-f404 powered tejas doesn't meet iaf requirements, so a follow up version of the tejas is being developed with a more powerful engine ironically, lca tejas mk-2 will be the lca that the iaf sought to begin with avionics & radar final cockpit design layout for tejas mk-2 has been frozen, mk-2.
These capabilities are further enhanced by several on-board sensors, communication and navigation systems that are supported by powerful mission computers and the main worry is the powerful engine required for the aircraft development of tejas mark 2 aircraft with alternate engine ge-f414 has been initiated. According to a report by times of india, iaf has “firmly committed” to 123 tejas jets at present, which will come at a cost of over inr 75,000 crore (us$ 115 billion) if both developmental and production costs are taken into account but it wants the next 201 tejas mark-ii jets to be “entirely new fighters” with.

The tejas mark 2 is already planned for the fielding of a more powerful engine ( ge f414 series) and revised aerodynamic elements, these slated for use by the iaf each production aircraft is expected to cost in the vicinity of $31 million usd the tejas prototype was initially intended to use the general. For this, the mod must review its current plan to build just forty tejas mark i fighters, and embark upon another risky adventure to develop a more powerful, capable fighter since this would take at least four years of development work, the iaf would not start receiving the tejas mark ii until 2018 furthermore.
