Looking to this time table, and considering India own project mgt track record, personally I do think Tejas Mk2 time table more doable, but have big doubt on AMCA Mk1 time table.
Considering this is practically two projects going to be done simultaneously, and looking HAL track record when completing Tejas Mk1, I do see Tejas Mk2 can be done in time table as it is practically evolution on Tejas Mk1 and Mk1A. However AMCA is more ambitious project and basically Indian ambitions for 5th Gen.
Looking on this model, and reflecting on how ROK and Turkiye catching up with KFX and TFX, I do see India still has some time to go. It is afterall they are practically also need to develop new materials for AMCA.
At least what I read to some more realistic media and forumers in Indian forums and Online Media, they are also put big doubt on AMCA time table. Tejas Mk2 and AMCA Mk1 will use similar engines (GE414) which also being use for KFX. However what many doubt is the abilities of HAL to done two projects simultaneously on schedule.
Still its interesting on how Indian going to fullfilling this ambitions.
