The LCA Tejas has a pure delta wing configuration, with no tailplanes or foreplanes, and a single dorsal fin. It integrates technologies such as relaxed static stability, fly-by-wire flight control system, advanced digital cockpit, multi-mode radar, integrated digital avionics system, advanced composite material structures and a flat rated engine.

LCA Tejas is a tailless,compound delta-wing design powered by a single engine. It came from the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) programme, which began in the 1980s to replace India’s aging MiG-21 fighters. Later, the LCA was officially named “Tejas“, meaning “Radiance” by then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

LCA Tejas achieved its Initial Operational Clearance (IOC) in January 2011 for use by IAF Pilots and its estimated that it will accomplish Final Operational Clearence (FOC) in 2013.

    Sir,
    We want self reliance and that too with state of the art technologies. We have seen the suppliers. Drainage of funds should be stopped. Selfe reliance will enhance our security and stop unnecessary bullying.
