In the year 1961 this land called India successfully made an indegeneous fighter aircraft, highly capable in terms of technology, so advanced that no other asian nation except Russia possessed such. The spinoff development from HAL HF-24 Marut gave rise to many new test configurations which ultimately produced greater aerospace expertise in our country. But a huge unsustainable political pressure killed this expertise and India’s aviation sector had to be sacrificed for the sake of diverting money and attention to development of Nuclear Capable Missiles.
Since then, the air of India is waiting for formidable fighters made by Indians, to take flight and secure us. The development of HAL Tejas mk1 is nearing completion and mass production would begin soon, this means our R&D labs would have had to wait until similar development activity for HAL’s AMCA project aren't started, moreover these labs need to run more to achieve more and develop an aerospace industry so strong that it shouldn't ever get destroyed due to political pressure like what happened last time with Marut.
