LCA Tejas :-things you didn't know about India's indigenous aircraft

Leave a Comment
The dream of the Indian Air Force to have a squadron of the indigenous Tejas Light Combat Aircraft has been realized on 01 July 2016, after years of delay. Two aircraft have been inducted into the IAF squadron, known as the ‘Flying Daggers 45’ at a ceremony in Bengaluru.


Become a Pilot in INDIAN AIR FORCE click here
For the first two years, the squadron will be based in Bengaluru, after which it will move to Sulur in Tamil Nadu.
The IAF has said that the aircraft will feature quite prominently in the force’s combat plan next year and it might be deployed in forward bases as well. There are also plans to acquire over 80 aircraft with better specifications, known as Tejas 1A in the future.
facts about the Tejas LCA:-

 It was in 1984 that the government of India first moved decisively to kick-start the process to build an indigenous aircraft. Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) was set up by the government to develop the programme.
* In 1986, Rs 575 crores were allocated by the then government towards funding the programe.
* On January 4th, 2001, the light combat aircraft made its first flight, a milestone in the Indian aviation industry. Then Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee named the aircraft ‘Tejas’ – which means ‘radiance’ in Sanskrit.
* The induction of Tejas comes at an important time when the IAF has wanted to desperately replace it with the ageing fleet of MiG-21, responsible for so many crashes.
* The aircraft is equipped to handle air-to-air missiles, air-to-surface missiles, anti-ship missiles, bombs and rockets.
* The aircraft’s structure is composed of 42% carbon fibre composites, 43% aluminium alloy and the remainder titanium alloy.
* The aircraft is being developed in single-seat fighter and twin-seat trainer variants for the IAF and the Navy.
* Earlier this year, the aircraft participated in its first foreign show at the Bahrain International Air Show 2016 where aircraft enthusiasts compared it to Pakistan’s JF-17 Thunder, that was produced with the help of China.
* It is considered to be the lightest multi-role supersonic aircraft of its class.
*The fly by wire technology make easier for the pilot to manoeuvre the aircraft.
*The fighter jet's wingspan stands at 8.2 metres while its length is 13.20 metres. Tejas stands at 
*Tejas can take off from 460 m tarmac while j-17 thunder needs a minimum 600 metre long runways.
*Tejas can operate upto a high of 50,000 feet.

* It is fitted with the New state-of-the-art  israeli radar ,consider to be one of best of its class.
* The aircraft can travel at a maximum speed of 2,205 km/hr for FOC version and 2,000 km/hr for IOC version.Source:-indianexpress
