The LCA Tejas "modified fighter" is shaped for better area-ruling coef. & significantly lesser drag all over the flight envelope. And hope that the Mark1A rolls-out in this fuselage. The area of CS streamlining.

The 4700 lt fuel in droptanks here, another 3,388 kg internally.

With payload of 2 × ASM, 2 × BVRAAM, 2 × CCM will reach 3000km given LCA Tejas can be ferried about 2000km at less than 2/3rd that fuel, but aerodynamic & not drag-optimised droptanks.

What is the point of continuing to operate MIG-21?

It has no BRV capability, nor multi-role.

That thing poses no risk to India's neighbors and seems to be a systemic threat to its pilots.
