In the ever-evolving landscape of aerial warfare, the development of advanced unmanned combat aerial vehicles (UCAVs) is poised to revolutionize military capabilities. Among these groundbreaking innovations is the Remotely-Piloted Strike Aircraft (RPSA) stealth UCAV, a formidable platform designed to augment the capabilities of manned fighter jets. To offer a glimpse into its scale and potential, we present a computer-generated image showcasing a side-by-side size comparison of the RPSA with the LCA-Tejas Mk1A fighter jets.

The provided computer-generated image offers a side-by-side comparison of the expected dimensions of the RPSA and the LCA-Tejas Mk1A. Both appear to be in the Light-weight category, with the RPSA possibly having a slightly smaller profile. This is supported by estimations of the RPSA’s Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) falling within the 12-13 ton range, placing it in the same league as the Tejas Mk1A’s 13.5-ton MTOW.

The RPSA’s defining feature is its stealth design, indicated by the smooth, angular lines in the image. This design philosophy minimizes its radar cross-section, making it difficult for enemy air defense systems to detect. This capability allows the RPSA to penetrate deep into hostile airspace for strategic missions.

The image depicts the RPSA with an internal weapons bay (IWB), suggesting it will carry a concealed payload of missiles or bombs. This internal storage contributes to its stealth profile. Powering this machine is expected to be a Dry Kaveri engine, generating around 46kN of thrust. This engine configuration allows for sub-sonic flight, ideal for long-endurance missions.

One of the most significant aspects of the RPSA is its autonomous capabilities. The image does not showcase any cockpit, hinting at its ability to take off, navigate, and land without human intervention. This feature reduces risk to pilots and expands the range of operations the RPSA can undertake.

The comparable size and potential power of the RPSA suggest it will operate alongside the LCA-Tejas Mk1A fighter jets. The Tejas Mk1A, a 4.5 generation fighter jet, brings maneuverability and advanced avionics to the table. The RPSA, with its stealth and autonomous features, can act as a force multiplier for the Tejas Mk1A, providing support in various air strike missions, including penetrating heavily defended enemy airspace.
