Tejas to perform in upcoming military exercise

January 04, 2018


The Indian Air Force has now decided to employ its very own indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas in the upcoming big scale “Exercise Gangashakti” which will be held from March to April.

As per the reports, the Tejas from the 1st Tejas squadron “No-45 The Flying Daggers” will be participating in the exercise along with other combat aircraft of the Indian Air Force.

Currently, the Tejas is going through a few tests and once those are done, it will be taking part in the forthcoming pan-India war games code-named ‘Exercise Gaganshakti”.

The Gangashakti is one of the biggest Pan-India exercises which is a theater level exercise where IAF will employee most of its assets including aircraft to validate its operational preparedness.

The Light Combat Aircraft is an indigenous aircraft created by Hindustan Aeronautical Limited along with ADA. It was inducted into the Indian Air Force in 2016 but it is yet to achieve its “Final Operational Clearance”.
