HAL Tejas

HAL Tejas                                                                                                                                                              Tejas is Indian Light Combat Aircraft fighter Jet developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. First I want to tell you that Tejas is developed to replace MIG- 21. The meaning of Tejas is Radiant in Sanskrit.

TEJAS is a single-seat, single-engine, lightweight, high-agility supersonic fighter aircraft. The LCA TEJAS can speed upto Mach 1.4 and is capable of carrying assorted weapon load along with dropping tanks up to four tons. It has some of the latest avionics and digital flight control systems. The Tejas, presently is powered by American General Electric Engine. The HAL TEJAS is designed with a single vertical fin  with no tailplanes or foreplanes and has a delta wing configuration.

The aircraft is also fitted with a night vision compatible glass cockpit with Martin Baker (UK) zero-zero ejection seats. The aircraft’s electronic warfare suite, developed by the Advanced Systems Integration and Evaluation Organisation (ASIEO) of Bangalore, includes a radar warning receiver and jammer, laser warner, missile approach warner, and chaff and flare dispenser. The LCA’s design has been configured to match the demands of modern combat scenario such as speed, acceleration, maneuverability and agility.

Now I like to post the comparative analysis between Tejas and J-17 (pakistan+china) by Mr. Gurung Kalanidhi.Gururag Kalanidhi, Defence Technology Analyst.Written Sep 1, 2015

These two aircraft follow a similar timeline of development. But, the similarity ends there. The LCA Tejas and JF-17 were designed with very different end applications in mind. For, India the Tejas was designated to be an aircraft which was to drive the technology influx into its fledgling aerospace industry. From the onset, the emphasis was not on costs but usage of cutting edge technology. This is not the case for Pakistan. For Pakistan the JF-17 is a much needed breather to replace its old fleet of Mirage III and Chengdu J-7 Fighters. Also, the design of these two aircraft is completely different. IAF has always been vehement about latest technology and this was the driving factor behind the design of the Tejas whose design has evolved around the timeline. But for Pakistan, this is not the case. The JF-17 is essentially a redesigned version of the Chengdu J-7(MiG 21 clone). Apart from the addition of LERX on the design and clipped delta wings, there’s not much of an improvement. On the other hand, the airframe of the Tejas is a beauty. Designed by ADA, it is a complex delta wing with an efficient leading edge blending for smooth handling at higher AoAs (Angle of Attack). Even the materials used for construction show the difference in the thought process. While ADA and HAL had from the onset been keen on keeping the weight low by using Carbon composites (at which India is now a pro), the CAC designed and PAC assembled JF-17 uses only aluminium alloys which add quite some weight to the design.

Aircraft Carriers of various country (एयरक्राफ्ट कैरियर (युद्धपोत) दुनिया भर के )

आजादी का पर्व मनाने के कुछ समय पहले से ही भारत की सीमा पर तनाव की स्थिति बनी हुई है। भारत ने आजादी के पर्व से पहले बिना कुछ बोले ही अपनी मजबूत ताकत का संदेश दिया है।

देश ने एयरक्राफ्ट कैरियर आईएनएस विक्रांत को लॉन्च कर और परमाणु सबमरीन अरिहंत को सक्रिय कर कड़ा संदेश दिया। भारत की इस सैन्य ताकत से पाकिस्तान ही नहीं चीन भी खौफजदा है।

World Top 10 Fighter Plane (2011-12)

Here we are talking about world top 10 Air Craft (20011-12) according to technology like Stealth, Semi Stealth, 5th gen and 4th + gen Air Craft, multirole  etc…

my first name is

1- F-22 Raptor-                                                                                                                                                                    . The Lockheed Martin/Boeing F-22 Raptor is a single-seat, twin-engine fifth-generation supermaneuverable fighter aircraft that uses stealth technology. It was designed primarily as an air superiority fighter, but has additional capabilities that include ground attack,electronic warfare, and signals intelligence roles  Lockheed Martin Aeronautics is the prime contractor and is responsible for the majority of the airframe, weapon systems and final assembly of the F-22. Program partner Boeing Defense, Space & Security provides the wings, aft fuselage, avionics integration, and training systems. First flight is taken in 7 sep 97 and introduced in 15 dec 2005

Lockheed Martin, teamed with Boeing and General Dynamics, had built and flown the demonstration prototype aircraft, designated YF-22. The first F-22 fighter aircraft was unveiled in April 1997 and was given the name Raptor.
“Carbon-fibre composites have been used for the F-22 fuselage frame.”                          U.S. ban on Raptor exports, and the ongoing development of the planned cheaper and more versatile F-35 resulted in calls to end F-22 production ,

F-22 Raptor is the only 5th generation fighter in service in 2011 , stealth technology , super avionics , vector thrust makes it number 1 with no other competitors near it now , but soon Su PAK FA T-50 and F-35 will challenge its superiority .”

2———————Sukhoi Pak FA t-50  (Asian favorite )

The Sukhoi PAK FA T-50 is a twin-engine jet fighter being developed by Sukhoi for the Russian Air Force. The Sukhoi T-50 is the prototype for PAK FA.The PAK FA is one of only a handful of stealth jet programs globally.

The PAK FA, a fifth generation jet fighter, is intended to be the successor to the MiG-29 and Su-27 in the Russian inventory and serve as the basis of the Sukhoi/HAL FGFA being developed with India. The T-50 prototype performed its first flight 29 January 2010 By 31 August 2010, it had made 17 flights and by mid-November, 40 in total. The second T-50 was to start its flight test by the end of 2010, but this was delayed until March 2011.                                                 First u have to know that PAK  FA  doesn’t mean pakistan fa, PAK FA means  [ Perspektivnyi Aviatsionnyi Kompleks Frontovoi Aviatsyi – Future Air Complex for Tactical Air Forces]. This intermediate class twin-engined fighter will be larger than a MiG-29 and smaller than a Su-27.
The aircraft will feature a long combat radius, supersonic cruise speed, low radar cross section, super maneuverability, and the ability to make short takeoffs and landings. In accordance with the technical requirements, the PAK FA will have a normal takeoff weight of 20 tons, which is close to the average normal takeoff weight of the two American airplanes, the F-35 JSF (17.2 tons) and the F-22 (24 tons). The new fighter (a medium version) will have a traditional wing form, though the experience gathered as a result of Berkut’s test flights will be taken in consideration when designing the fighter. It is supposed that it will be created using the Stealth technology, and equipped with two AL-41F engines by the Saturn scientific and industrial enterprise, a radar system with an active phased array (to all appearances, it will be produced by the Fazatron-NIIR corporation), and high-pecision weapons.


” SU PAK SF T-50 Russia`s first 5th generation plane , twin super cruise engine , best avionics system , Sukhoi background and out performance in simulation by USAF brings to this spot though still need to be tested but west have acknowledged it. JSF and T-50 will be future competitors and list could change according thaT

3–Sukhoi Su-30MKI / Sukhoi Su-35 (MY FAVORITE )

The Sukhoi Su-30MKI (NATO reporting nameFlanker-H) is an air superiority fighter  jointly developed by Russia’s Sukhoi and India’sHindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force (IAF). A variant of the (Sukhoi Su-30) and (SU- 35  Flanker-E is a single-seat, twin-engined supermaneuverable multirole fighter. It is a derivative of the Su-27 ‘Flanker’ , it is a heavy, all-weather, long-range fighter.)

SU-30MKI -Development of the variant started after India signed a deal with Russia in 2000 to manufacture 140 Su-30 fighter jets. The first Russian-made Su-30MKI variant was accepted into the Indian Air Force in 2002, while the first indigenously assembled Su-30MKI entered service with the IAF in 2004.[ In 2007, the IAF ordered 40 additional MKIs.The IAF has 157 Su-30MKIs in active service as of January 2012;it plans to have a fleet of 272. The Su-30MKI is expected to form the backbone of the Indian Air Force’s fighter fleet to 2020 and beyond.

The aircraft is tailor-made for Indian specifications and integrates Indian systems and avionics as well as French and Israeli subsystems. It has abilities similar to the Sukhoi Su-35 with which it shares many features and components,  comparable in cost to the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, but lacking in features such as stealth, but still it’s the best one , In 2004 India inked a deal with Russia to domestically produce the Novator K-100 missile for its Su-30MKI fighters. The Novator K-100 missile is designed to shoot down AWACS and otherC4ISTAR aircraft.,while keeping the launch platform out of range of any fighters that might be protecting the target.

Sukhoi`s  su 30 mki and su 35 is new and most admired series of planes with western avionics , super cruise speed , AWACS missile system and vector thrust can make it one of the best 4 th++  generation fighter plane in the List “. 

4————-F-35 Lightning II                                                                                                                            . The Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II is a family of single-seat, single-engine, fifth generation multirole fighters under development to perform ground attack, reconnaissance, and air defense missions with stealth capability.

The  F-35 has three main models; the F-35A is a conventional takeoff and landing variant, the F-35B is a short take off and vertical-landing variant, and the F-35C is a carrier-based variant.

The F-35 is descended from the X-35, the product of the Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) program. JSF development is being principally funded by the United States, with the United Kingdom and other partner governments providing additional funding. The partner nations are either NATO members or close U.S. allies. It is being designed and built by an aerospace industry team led by Lockheed Martin. The F-35 carried out its first flight on 15 December 2006. It will be introduced agter 2016

The United States plans to buy a total of 2,443 aircraft to provide the bulk of its tactical airpower for the U.S. Air ForceMarine Corps and Navy over the coming decades. The United KingdomItalyNetherlandsAustraliaCanadaNorwayDenmarkTurkeyIsrael and Japan are part of the development program and may equip their air services with the F-35

” Its a Future plane of USA & NATO , stealth , best avionics , vertical take off and 5 th generation fighter gives its 3rd Spot , what it lacks could be high cost of production thus cutting down the number of planes , single engine . “

 5———F/A-18 Hornet (F-18)

The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine supersonic, all-weather carrier-capable multirole fighter jet, designed to dogfight and attack ground targets

The F/A-18 multi-mission aircraft can operate from either aircraft carriers or land bases. The F/A-18 fills a variety of roles: air superiority, fighter escort, suppression of enemy air defenses, reconnaissance, forward air control, close and deep air support, and day and night strike missions. The F/A-18 Hornet replaced the F-4 Phantom II fighter and A-7 Corsair II light attack jet, and also replaced the A-6 Intruder as these aircraft were retired during the 1990s.

The F/A-18 has a top speed of Mach 1.8. It can carry a wide variety of bombs and missiles, including air-to-air and air-to-ground, supplemented by the 20 mm M61 Vulcan cannon. It is powered by two General Electric F404 turbofan engines, which give the aircraft a high thrust-to-weight ratio. The F/A-18 has excellent aerodynamic characteristics, primarily attributed to its leading edge extensions

Since May 1994, the Hornet has been equipped with upgraded radar – the APG-73 -, which substantially increases the speed and memory capacity of the radar’s processors. In addition, today’s Hornets have a laser target designator/ranger, housed within the targeting forward-looking infrared sensor that enables the aircraft to deliver precision laser-guided bombs with pinpoint accuracy.

” F-18 hornet no doubt one the greatest fighter , seen lots of action with superior avionics from Boeing brings it to this spot but lacks vector thrust compared to Russian counterparts , and in one the dog fight display in US with Sukhoi , it was out gunned. “

 -6—–The Dassault Rafale                                                                                            . . Rafale (French pronunciation: ​[ʁafal]squall) is a French twin-engine delta-wing fighter aircraft designed and built by Dassault Aviation. Dassault described the Rafale as being an omnirole fighter with semi-stealth capabilities.The Rafale is a multirole combat aircraft; capable of simultaneously undertaking air supremacyinterdictionreconnaissance, and the airborne nuclear deterrent missions.

The Rafale M entered service in 2001, and ten aircraft are operational on the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier.
Rafale B and C entered service with the French Air Force in June 2006, when the first squadron was established. The second air force squadron was set up in 2008.
Navy Rafale F1 standard fighters have air-to-air capability. Deliveries to the navy of the F2 standard, with air-to-ground missiles, began in May 2006 and 17 were delivered in May 2008. F1 aircraft are to be upgraded.

The Rafale is typically outfitted with the Thales RBE2 passive electronically scanned multi-mode radar. Thales claims to have achieved unprecedented levels of situational awareness through the earlier detection and tracking of multiple air targets for close combat and long-range interception, as well as real-time generation of three-dimensional maps for terrain-following and the real-time generation of high resolution ground maps for navigation and targeting,

very soon Rafael is the part of Indian Army ,

” The Dassault Rafale is semi stealth fighter 4++ genration plane with twin engine to support high speed performance including french avionics which makes it better to place at this position “.

 7——-JAS 39 Gripen

The Saab JAS 39 Gripen is a lightweight single-engine multirole fighter manufactured by the Swedish aerospace company Saab. It was designed to replace the Saab 35 Draken and 37 Viggen in the Swedish Air Force.

The Gripen has a delta wing and canard configuration with relaxed stability design and fly-by-wire technology. It is powered by the Volvo-Flygmotor RM12 engine, a derivative of the General Electric F404, and has a top speed of Mach 2.

Weapon options include a 27mm Mauser internal cannon, Raytheon AIM-9 Sidewinder and AIM-120 AMRAAM air-to-air missiles and Raytheon Paveway II laser-guided bombs. The aircraft is also being used to support the development of MBDA’s Meteor beyond visual-range air-to-air missile ,

Nato, south Africa, Brajil,thailand, uk ,switzerland and  holland is using Gripen or already oderd, India just miss it“Recent reports have came up that new Gripen NG will have lots of new upgrades far better than its counterparts and along with this it is participating in MMRCA , one of the factor to decided to find out best.”

8———–Typhoon

The Eurofighter Typhoon is a twin-enginecanarddelta wingmultirole fighter.The Typhoon was designed by a consortium of three companies, EADSAlenia Aeronautica and BAE Systems, working through a holding company, Eurofighter GmbH, which was formed in 1986. It was initially introduced into service in 2003.

9——MIG 35

The Mikoyan MiG-35 (Russian: Микоян МиГ-35, NATO reporting nameFulcrum-F) is a further development of the MiG-29M/M2 and MiG-29K/KUB technology. It is classified as a 4++ generation jet fighter by Mikoyan.The first prototype was a modification of the aircraft that previously served as MiG-29M2 model demonstrator. 10 prototypes have been built so far and are currently subject to extensive field trials.The MiG-35 is now classed as a medium-weight aircraft because its maximum take-off weight has increased by 30 percent, exceeding its previous criteria of classification.

MiG Corporation first officially presented the MiG-35 internationally during the Aero India 2007 air show.The MiG-35 was officially unveiled when the Russian Minister of Defence, Sergey Ivanov, visited Lukhovitsky Machine Building Plant “MAPO-MIG”.The single seat version is designated MiG-35 and the two-seat version is MiG-35D. The fighter has vastly improved avionics and weapon systems,  the aircraft from relying on ground-controlled interception (GCI) systems and enables it to conduct independent multi-role missions.                                          Phazotron Zhuk AE AESA radar is installed in the production version of MiG-35Most of the systems introduced in the MiG-35 can be applied to older MiG-29s through upgrading programs.

“MIG 35 is one of the best plane  plane in the series of MIG lineup and because of there reputation they have worked hard and made changes according to western standards but still have to play action role in the coming future.”

10——The Chengdu J-10  (the pride of china)

j-10 (Jian-10 export designation F-10 Vanguard) is a multirole fighter aircraft designed and produced by the People’s Republic of China‘s Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation (CAC) for the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). Known in the West as the “Vigorous Dragon“, the J-10 is a multirole combat aircraft capable of all-weather operation.

The J-10 adopts a “tailless delta-canard” aerodynamic layout, which was originally developed for the cancelled J-9 fighter. The aircraft has the horizontal control surfaces moved forward to become a canard in front of the wing. When the aircraft pitches up, instead of forcing the tail down decreasing overall lift, the canard lifts the nose, increasing the overall lift. Because the canard is picking up the fresh air stream instead of the wake behind the main wing, the aircraft can achieve better control authority with a smaller-size control surface, thus resulting in less drag and less weight.

The J-10 bears some resemblance to three prior fighters: the Mikoyan-Gurevich Ye-8, the Chengdu J-9 and the Israeli IAI Lavi,all of which were cancelled. While the Lavi is popularly described as having similar canard-configuration to the J-10,the original Chinese design of the J-9 preceded the Lavi. But it should also be noted that a number of jet fighter aircraft have similarities to the delta-winged and canard-configuration of the J-10, such as the Dassault Rafale and the Saab JAS 39 Gripen. The general designer Song Wencong has denied the J-10 was a copy of the Lavi, and said that it was a development of the indigenous J-9

“Chengdu J-10 is the pride of China declared by china, it is one of the most imp project of china. its really one of the gretest jet but still to have see lot of action and its fighter plane from china so its hard to say about the future prospect of this plane right now,

Dear frnds
after talking about top 10 Air Craft some of u surely said that their is some other AirCratf which have to be in Top -10
so lets talk about some other gr8 planes

1-The Sukhoi Su-47 Berkut (Russian: Су-47 БеркутGolden Eagle) (NATO reporting name Firkin), also designated S-32 and S-37 (not to be confused with the twin-engined delta canard design  offered by Sukhoi in the early 1990s under the designation Su-37) during initial development, was an experimental supersonic jet fighter developed by Sukhoi Aviation Corporation. A distinguishing feature of the aircraft was its forward-swept wing[2] that gave the aircraft excellent agility and maneuverability.   

While serial production of the type never materialized, the sole aircraft produced served as a technology demonstrator prototype for a number of advanced technologies later used in the 4.5 generation fighter SU-35BM and current 5th generation fighter prototype Sukhoi PAK FA.
many of us want to see this plane in top 10, but my point of view that there are more upgraded models in top 10

2- JF-17 Thunder(the pride of pakistan)

The PAC JF-17 Thunder(the pride of pakistan), or CAC FC-1 Xiaolong, is a light-weight, single-engine, multi-role combat aircraft developed jointly by the Pakistan Air Force, the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex and the Chengdu Aircraft Industries Corporation of China.

The JF-17 has a top speed of Mach 1.6.It can carry a variety of missiles and bombs, including air to air and Air-to-surface missiles, supplemented by a 23/30 mm GSh-23-2 twin-barrel autocannon. It is powered by a RD-93 or WS-13 afterburning turbofan. Its unique diverterless supersonic inlet (DSI) makes it stealthy. Currently, the JF-17 is slated to become the backbone of Pakistan Air Force (PAF), complementing the F-16s as well as the J-10Bs (on order) within its aircraft ranks and is also expected to fill the duties of aerial reconnaissance, ground-attack, fighter and aerial interception.

Pakistan has already started induction, and has plans to induct around 250 units.The JF-17 will replace Pakistan’s ageing fleet of A-5C, Mirage-III, Mirage-V, and F-7P/PG by 2015. The first squadron was inducted in the Pakistan Air Force in February 2010.In China it is in an evaluation phase (passed design appraisal).Many other countries have also shown an interest in purchasing the JF-17 Thunder.

3- Dassault-Breguet Mirage 2000

The Dassault Mirage 2000 is a French multirole, single-engine fourth-generation jet fighter manufactured by Dassault Aviation. It was designed as a lightweight fighter based on the Mirage III in the late 1970s for the French Air Force.

In kargil war (India) it was the most effective weapon and aircraft of India

There was another important reason for Dassault to push the Mirage 2000. Developement of this small aircraft would also give the company a competitor to the General Dynamics F-16 Fighting Falcon, which had defeated the Dassault Mirage F1 in a contest for a new fighter for the air forces of Belgium, Denmark, Netherlands and Norway. Small single-engined fighters were clearly the most appreciated by foreign customers, as experience with the larger, twin-engined Mirage 4000 would show

 4-F-16 Fighting falcon

 F-16 Fighting Falcon is a multirole jet fighter aircraft originally developed by General Dynamics for the United States Air Force (USAF). Designed as an air superiority day fighter, it evolved into a successful all-weather multirole aircraft. Over 4,500 aircraft have been built since production was approved in 1976.

Although no longer being purchased by the U.S. Air Force, improved versions are still being built for export customers. In 1993, General Dynamics sold its aircraft manufacturing business to the Lockheed Corporation,which in turn became part of Lockheed Martin after a 1995 merger with M The Fighting Falcon is a fighter with numerous innovations including a frameless bubble canopy for better visibility, side-mounted control stick to ease control while maneuvering, a seat reclined 30 degrees to reduce the effect of g-forces on the pilot, and the first use of arelaxed static stability/fly-by-wire flight control system that makes it a highly nimble aircraft. The F-16 has an internal M61 Vulcan cannon and 11 locations for mounting weapons and other mission equipment. The F-16’s official name is “Fighting Falcon”, but “Viper” is commonly used by its pilots, due to a perceived resemblance to a viper snake as well as the Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viperstarfighterartin Marietta

5—-The HAL Tejas is a lightweight multirole fighter developed by India. It is a tailless  compound delta-wingdesign powered by a single engine. It came from the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) programme, which began in the 1980s to replace India’s aging MiG-21 fighters. Later, the LCA was officially named “Tejas“,meaning “Radiance”The Tejas has a pure delta wing configuration, with no tailplanes or foreplanes, and a single dorsal fin. It integrates technologies such asrelaxed static stabilityfly-by-wire flight control system, advanced digital cockpit, multi-mode radar, integrated digital avionics system, advanced composite material structures and a flat rated engine. The Indian Air Force (IAF) is reported to have a requirement for 200 single-seat and 20 two-seat conversion trainers, while the Indian Navy may order up to 40 single-seaters to replace its Sea Harrier FRS.51 andHarrier T.60.

The Tejas achieved a speed of over 1,350 kilometres per hour (840 mph) during its sea level flight trials, thus becoming the second supersonic fighter developed indigenously by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited after the HAL Marut.] The Tejas was cleared in January 2011 for use by Indian Air Force pilots. It is to reach final operational clearance in 2013.

5- JH 7/7A-  Xian JH-7 ( fighter-bomber); NATO reporting name Flounder), also known as the FBC-1 (Fighter/Bomber China-1) Flying Leopard, is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine fighter-bomber in service with the People’s Liberation Army Naval Air Force(PLANAF), and the People’s Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF). The main contractors are Xian Aircraft Industry Corporation (XAC) and the 603rd Aircraft Design Institute (later named the First Aircraft Institute of AVIC-1

The JH-7A had a lighter and stronger airframe than the JH-7, allowing the newer aircraft to carry a maximum ordnance load of 9000 kg. In PLANAF, this allowed four YJ-82 anti-ship missiles to be carried, compared to the two on the JH-7.] In addition, it had JL-10A pulse doppler radar, fly-by-wireflight control system, one-piece windscreen, additional hardpoints, and could fire laser-guided bombs and Kh-31anti-radiation missiles. The existing JH-7s were upgraded with JH-7A electronics

Indian Air Force (make us proud)

Indian Air force is in top 5 air craft power in the world, it may be 3rd or 4rth air craft power in technology and in numbers,

first we talk about the latest technology called stealth  technology and then about our Air craft power with versions & no.

Stealth aircraft are aircraft  that use stealth technology  to avoid detection by employing a combination of features to interfere with Radar as well as reduce visibility in the infrared, visual, audio, and radio frequency spectrum. Development of stealth technology likely began in Germany during world war 2. Well-known modern examples of stealth aircraft include the United States’ F-117 nighthawk , the B-2 spirit , the f-22 raptor ,and the F-35 lighting 2

While no aircraft is totally invisible to radar, stealth aircraft make it difficult for conventional radar to detect or track the aircraft effectively, increasing the odds of a successful attack. Stealth is the combination of passive low observable (LO) features and active emitters such as Low Probability of Intercept Radars, radios and laser designators. These are usually combined with active defenses such as chaff,flares & ECM . It is accomplished by using a complex design philosophy to reduce the ability of an opponent’s sensors to detect, track, or attack the stealth aircraft. This philosophy also takes into account the heat, sound, and other emissions of the aircraft as these can also be used to locate it.

Full-size stealth combat aircraft demonstrators have been flown by the United States (in 1977), Russia (in 2010) and China (in 2011), while the US military  has already adopted three stealth designs, and is preparing to adopt another.

The Stealth aircraft will continue to play a valuable role in air combat with the United States using the F-22 raptor, B-2 Spirit, and the F-35 lighting 2(single engine single seater) to perform a variety of operations.

The Russian Sukhoi Pak FA stealth multi-role fighter is scheduled to be introduced from 2015, to perform a wide variety of missions. frnds …First u have to know that pak fa doesn’t mean pakistan fa, PAK FA means  [ Perspektivnyi Aviatsionnyi Kompleks Frontovoi Aviatsyi – Future Air Complex for Tactical Air Forces]. This intermediate class twin-engined fighter will be larger than a MiG-29 and smaller than a Su-27

The Sukhoi/Hal FGFA ,SU30 mki  the Indian version of the Su  Pak FA is scheduled to be introduced from 2017 in higher numbers, also to perform a wide variety of missions.

BrahMos missile under Su-30MKI maquette. MAKS-2009, the Su 30 mki is 4th + generation semi stealth plane make us proud

The China plans to introduce the Chendgu J-20 stealth multi-role fighter round 2018. A prototype was flown in early 2011

in India we are depending on Sukhoi SU-30 Mki , MIG- 29 ,Jaguar and Mirage 200 etc….

there are many type of  plane in our air force  like- 1—fighter air craft (long & small distance), 2-Air Superiority Fighter,3-Ground-attack,4-bomber,5-Cargo Aircraft,6-Aerial Refueling, 7-Airliner, 8-Airborne Early Warning,9-Trainer, 10-Interceptor 11-Anti-submarine warfare 12-Light Transport Aircraft etc….

now i am posting air crafts name ,type and versions with quantity

lets talk about Sukhoi su 30 our best air craft next is Rafael  (in next blog i will write about other fighter plane with his history and technology)

Sukhoi Su-30MKI (NATO power name is Flanker -H)  is an  Air superiority Fighter  jointly developed by Russia’s Sukhoi and India’s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force (IAF). A variant of the Sukhoi Su-30, it is a heavy, all-weather, long-range fighter.

Development of the variant started after India signed a deal with Russia in 2000 to manufacture 140 Su-30 fighter jets. The first Russian-made Su-30MKI variant was accepted into the Indian Air Force in 2002, while the first indigenously assembled Su-30MKI entered service with the IAF in 2004. In 2007, the IAF ordered 40 additional MKIs. The IAF has 157 Su-30MKIs in active service as of January 2012;it plans to have a fleet of 272. The Su-30MKI is expected to form the backbone of the Indian Air Force’s fighter fleet to 2020 and beyond.

The aircraft is tailor-made for Indian specifications and integrates Indian systems and avionics as well as French and Israeli subsystems. It has abilities similar to the Sukhoi Su-35 with which it shares many features and components
