    hi I want to share my some aeronautics design for indian airforce how could I do this

  • pradipta

    DRDO have kaberi tarbin engin it have 83kn throught. OK it don’t use in LCA because Indian air force ned 95kn. Then make a new aircraft which is chipper then LCA and its only work is bombing. Then we have a light weight bomber. Which is better then mig 27. Might 27 is very old.
