India is working on fifth generation warplanes: Chief of Air Staff

Air Chief Marshal Air Chief Marshal Rakesh Kumar Singh Bhadauria said on Saturday that eight Rafale aircraft had arrived in India and three were expected to arrive by the end of this month. The Air Chief was speaking at a press conference after the conclusion of the Indian and French Air Force ‘Exercise Desert Night-21’ in Jodhpur.

He said the Indian Air Force, in collaboration with the Defense Research Development Organization (DRDO), has launched a fifth-generation fighter aircraft program and plans to include some sixth-generation capabilities in it.

“Our current approach is to incorporate the latest technology and sensors into fifth-generation aircraft,” Vadoria said.

He said, “We started work on the fifth generation aircraft a little late. So the technology and sensors of the time would be integrated with the fifth generation fighter jets.” “It’s been done and the current practice itself is the result of a desert night,” Vadoria said.
