Tejas faces delays seeking changes in existing platform

May 25, 2018


Yet again the Light Combat Aircraft Tejas faces delays due to the Indian Air Force asking for further changes in its existing platform.

As per the latest information available, the IAF has requested Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) incorporate new systems with further upgrades. The upgrades will require more time than the planned timeframe which will delay it more.

The Indian Air Force already has one squadron of  Tejas aircraft but the squadron got only half the required aircraft instead of a full number of aircraft to make up a full squadron.

Tejas is a light combat aircraft developed by HAL and ADA to provide the IAF with a replacement for the Mig-21 aircraft.
