Inspired by the F-22 Raptor, in fact the Indian AMCA will have technology like the F-35, why?

ZONAJAKARTA.com – More and more countries are beginning to build their own fifth-generation combat aircraft.

One of them is India with a program called “AMCA”.

Reported Zonajakarta.com of Eurasian timeAviation Development Agency (ADA) chief executive Girish S. Deodhare told The Week that the design of the AMCA was complete.

“Now it’s just a matter of making the jet,” he said.

The aircraft consists of nearly 15,000 components.

Everything has also been finalized in terms of design.

The AMCA was designed as a fifth generation stealth fighter with a low observability design.

It will be a twin-engine stealth aircraft with an internal weapons bay and a switchless supersonic air intake.

AMCA would have been made because it was inspired by the F-22 Raptor.

A report from the Eurasian Times reveals that the inspiration for the F-22 Raptor began when the ADA formed a small study group.

The group aims to explore the capabilities of the fifth generation fighter by 2005.

At that time, the F-22 Raptor was launched in the same year.

Then, in 2009, a core group was formed with five defense scientists.

NAK Browne, then Deputy Chief of the Indian Air Force briefed them on the operational requirements of the IAF.

Ultimately, the knowledge ADA gained while developing the LCA Tejas gave them the confidence to try out the stealth aircraft design.

The F-22’s incredible maneuverability and ability to reach supersonic cruising speeds (at Mach 1.8) without using afterburners was of great interest to the team.

Cited Zonajakarta.com of Defense Updatein contrast, the AMCA would not be a fighter like the F-22.

Instead of the F22, the AMCA will look more like the F-35 based on its role.

Even so, the AMCA will not be as advanced as the F-35 or F-22 in some respects.

However, it will be a balanced machine with enough modesty in many ways for Indian needs.

HAL AMCA has also been integrated with the latest avionics suite which includes AESA radar, integrated avionics system, helmet mounted display and data link capabilities.

In addition, there is IRST, E/O Targeting System (EOTS), Multi-Function Integrated Radio Electronics System (MIRES), ECM Suite, Laser Countermeasures against Infrared Missiles, IRST for Targets aerials, ultraviolet warning sensors and targeting modules.

Even so, in terms of design, the AMCA should be similar to the F-22 Raptor.

“Overall, the AMCA resembles the F-22 with a faceted shape that forms the fuselage,” defenseupdate.in wrote. ***
