Based on various Indian forums, media and online sources, Tejas Mk1 is intended to replace Mig 21, 23, and 27, while this article seems point out Tejas Mk2 is intended to replace practically everything else asside Su-30 MKI and off course Rafale.
Curious though, the plan seems make sense enough as Tejas Mk1 for LCA, Tejas Mk2 for MRCA (as some Indian media designated the Mk2), and Su-30MKI as Heavy Fighters. However why still this talk for more Rafale or F-16V Indian version (F-21) or even F-15EX ?
At the time where everyone want to consolidate their fighters number, where Rafale, or F-21 or even F-15EX really fit the plan ?
Why not stick with Tejas Mk1, Mk2 and Su-30MKI? Why India AF want to go back with numerous Fighters type again ? Just wondering if Political interest playing on this.
