Kaveri was a clean sheet design started long before India started license producing AL-31. Seems to me the issue is design flaws, not manufacturing processes.Does India manufacture AL-31FP engines for the Su-30 MKI?
Any evidences, official confirmations as to such? What is the level of indigenization? What exactly are the manufacturing licenses for?
I heard from other forums that India does Manufacture of AL-31FP.
Can't take their words for what it is. If so, India ought to have no issues producing its own Engines.
There seems to be a huge gap between the asserted Indian production of AL-31FP and India's failure in producing its own engine for Tejas (GTRE GTX 35VS KAVERI).
