Well, please try it the other way around and explain us, why do you think we should belive taht India could do this independently while it tries the same for a fourth generation engine (the Kaveri) since decades without success, while it tries to develop and get a decent fourth generation fighter into service since decades without true success!? IMO India’s endless list of wishes, promised and in the end delays or just plain failures - I would call this a hard reality check - gives me NOT A SINGLE jota of hope, India could develop a faith generation let a fifth generation fighter independently.

Do't get me wrong, and in no way I want to belittle India or its achievements and even more so its rise, but these constant claims what India will do as step 5 and 6 - aka dreaming about 5th & 6th generation fighters and more - while still not getting steps 3 and 4 done without falling is in fact embarrassing.
Their tactic is to drag you down to their level of thinking, and then use whatever experience they've got, however limited, to beat you.
