  18. This is a LCA front section.

    Possibly
    LSP-6 (experimental)
    LSP-7 or
    LSP-8.

    There is NO refueling probe inlet visible on this side of the plane. All the holes that we see are present in the other LSPs also.

    Tough luck buddy. There is no extra hole on this one. All the holes that we see here are present in the other LCA LSPs also. The flap covers on these holes are exactly the same as on other LSPs.

    I could try and label what each hole is for, but that would not be proper.

    See this image for comparision:

  22. But where is the refuelling probe on this one?

    There is no extra hole on this front section for that on this side.

    Is the probe going to be on the port (left) side like on the MKI?

    THIS IS INDEED THE FORWARD FUSELAGE SECTION OF THE FIRST SERIES PRODUCTION DHRUV, WHICH HAS BEGUN STRUCTURAL ASSEMBLY.

  26. There is an error Colonal Shukla,

    You typed DHRUV. It should be Tejas.

    The colour of the composites seems to be different from the LSPs?

    Did they tell you anything on that?
