New Official Schematics Of India's Concept Regional Jet

These are the official new schematics of India's National Civil Aircraft (NCA), under conceptualisation by the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) in Bangalore. The effort is part of an ambitious government-funded campaign to create and build a regional airliner for India and the world market. While little is known about where the programme is currently, there is already debate about whether the limited resources of the aerospace establishment need to be invested in such a large programme, especially when NAL's existing programmes -- the Saras, the NM5 and others -- are nowhere close to completion. Others suggest that such a programme is precisely the sort of thing India's aerospace establishment needs -- something big, solid. Vote below (poll open for 48 hours) and have your say. Let's keep the arguments credible please.
