The Aeronautical Development Agency’s (ADA) AMCA program is making significant strides towards a future-proof fighter jet. The project team is prioritizing two key features: spiral upgrades and modular design, ensuring the aircraft’s continued relevance for years to come. has been told that the AMCA’s design allows for incremental capability additions through “Blocks.” New features and functionalities can be integrated over time, eliminating the need for a complete overhaul until a Mid-Life Update (MLU).

This approach ensures the AMCA remains technologically advanced throughout its service life, keeping pace with evolving threats and battlefield requirements.

The AMCA’s modular design philosophy extends to its engine bay. This allows for the integration of a new engine variant without extensive modifications. This flexibility ensures the AMCA can accommodate more powerful engines as they become available, enhancing performance capabilities.

Initial AMCA prototypes and the AMCA Mk. I will utilize F414 engines. The AMCA Mk.II is envisioned to be equipped with a significantly more powerful engine generating 110kN of thrust. DRDO’s GTRE (Gas Turbine Research Establishment) is actively seeking an international partner for the development of this new engine but the AMCA project team is confident that the chosen engine manufacturer, whoever it may be, will be able to seamlessly integrate their powerplant within the existing modular design. has been told that AMCA with only minor adjustments will be required to accommodate the new engine, reducing development time and costs. AMCA also remains open to future engine options, ensuring its ability to leverage technological advancements in propulsion systems.
