India will now manufacture the fifth-generation fighter aircraft on its own under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan. Currently, Rafael fighter jets coming from France are of 4.5 generation, while America, Russia, and France have developed next-generation aircraft.
Therefore, India has decided to manufacture the fifth generation Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft on its own, while reducing the dependence on foreign companies and promoting ‘Self-reliant India’ and ‘Make in India’ mission. For this, work has started on fast-forwarding the scheme, pending for three years.
Thus, the detailed design of AMCA has been finalized, and now better engines are being sought.
