꧁𓊈𒆜🅹🅸🅾🆃🆅🆅🅸🅽🅴🅴𒆜𓊉꧂Tejas #SP23 First Flight and NP5: Tejas SP-22 or Sp23 has made its first flight today. This is the third fighter jet of the F4C standard.
The F4C’s first flight jet SP21 has already been delivered to INDIAN NAVY. In September last year, Sp22 also made its first flight. But it is not confirmed that this Sp23 fighter jet has been given to the Indian Air Force.
It took its first flight in September 2020. Then Tejas SP-22 was complete. However, the flight operation was due to Covid-19.
Flight testing was not done due to the fact that it was closed. This was a function that could not be done in the work from the home mood.
Now flight operations have resumed. Now after the Tejas SP-22 flight, fighter jets will now make their first flight within three to four months.
Tejas SP-22, sp24, sp25, sp26, sp27 respectively. Some time ago there was a report that by March 2021, HAL will be able to deliver only two units.
Shortly before, sp21 was delivered to the Indian Army. SP22 was ready. There was no confirmation about SP23 and SP24.
Sp25 was on the SP26 Coupling Inn stage. The rest of the fighters were put on jet assembly kits. The assembly of the fighter jet is over the assembly kits.
Once these fighter jets are fully assembled. They are then folded. That is, when a fighter goes into the jet compiling stage, he gets out of the assembly kits.
And that assembly kits empty. For assembly of the next aircraft. Because all the aircraft of Infosys Standard have been put on the assembly kits.
This means that the manufacturing of all these aircraft will take more than 12 months. That is, by March 2022, all these aircraft will be ready.
And according to R. Madhavan, chairman and managing director of H.A.L, 7 aircraft will be delivered by this March.
If the August 7 aircraft are ready by March, then all these aircraft will be given to the Indian Air Force after testing for 1 or 2 months.
What is About to Naval version of Tejas?
On the other hand, if we talk about NLCA ie the Naval version of Tejas. Its third prototype NP5 is being made. And this is also a fighter jet in its much-advanced stage.
NACL’s 2 protocols NP1 and NP2 are already testing. Currently, this prototype is the Shore Base Faculty in Goa. They are testing from there.
Different tests are being done on these. During this testing, the aircraft is being prepared for takeoff and take land in different weather conditions.
For this testing, different data of different aircraft, different averages, and different angles of landing are being collected on these aircraft.
All this data will prove to be very helpful in the development of fighter jet based on two engines in the coming time. The prototype numbers 3 and 4 of the Naval NACL were canceled.
And 5 is made directly. The Naval NACL prototype number 5 ie NP5 is the prototype of a production standard. And later on the basis of this fighter jet.
Fighter jet trainers will be made for the Indian Navy. On the other hand, there are full chances of this. Make HAL NP5 restless for the US Navy’s requirement.
However, there is very little chance about the execution of this aircraft from the US Navy. Because US General offers their products.
But the experience coming from this competition is going to be very useful for HAL. And in the long-term, HL is going to benefit a lot due to the experience gained from this competition.
