The LCAs Kaveri engine is still not ready and the delays are also a problem.

The LCA CANNOT compare w/ the F-16, a better comparison is the LCA vs. the JF-17!
I can't wait until the day when the F-16s fly over P'yongyang!

No the LCA is not comparable to the JF-17 since the JF-17'S 4 Prototype was 90% as comparable to the f-16 block 52.The LCA is not even worth mentioning.After 30+ years its only comparable to the mig-23.

Range:840
Combat radius: only 300km
Speed: 1.6 mach

What the thing is better in Hal Tejas..... Only composit meterial...
Only Composit meterial is not make stealth fighter.
But composit meterial is the part of the stealth fighter .
So your fighter is not stealth fighter. And ver high cost.
Imagin
Tejas is conflict 7 mig21Bison's :obviously no
So 7 mig 21b is better than Tejas why
Because mig21b unit cost is 3m us$ and lca teja unit cost is 31m us$

Return to F-16 versus XYZ
