India’s Fifth Generation Fighter Jet “HAL AMCA” To Debut in 2032

HAL AMCA – The Advanced Medium Combat Jet is India’s next indigenous fighter jet programme. This fighter jet (HAL AMCA) is expected to take off by 2032. To give itself an edge in the possibilities of India-Pakistan or India-China War, India is developing a new fighter jet, which is developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) as the design firm and manufacturing carried out by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

The Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA) programme is currently in the development phase. As per secondary research by EurAsian Times, the HAL AMCA will have geometric stealth advantages and will initially fly with two GE-414 engines.

A defence source stated that once India develop’s its own engine than the GE-414 engines will be replaced by the same. Geometric Stealth capabilities mean that the fighter jet will be able to deflect away maximum radar waves given the angles of the aircraft design. Hence, these fighter jets will have a minimum radar cross section.

The Indian Air Force has assigned land to the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) to get the fighter jet programme underway. At the initial stage the fighter jets will be designed on principles of geometric stealth and later the options of material stealth features can be pondered upon.

The aim of the Indian Air Force is to develop a medium fifth-generation fighter aircraft by 2032 so that India is ready for all sorts of challenges. Thrust vectoring, stealth and supercruise are the three most critical technologies which need to be developed for this medium fifth generation fighter aircraft. As per EurAsian Times analysis, the DRDO has already started with the basic design configurations of India’s new fighter jets.

This is the lone fifth generation aircraft project of India. India has decided to pull back from the fifth generation joint production programme with Russia.
