Use it as a Wiki or for opinion pieces or analysis
This thread is gonna be a space to collect & compile source/citations for Wiki editing... To do the MWF i had to go through 50+pages of this thread.

Use the Knowledge Repository subsection to create a restricted access collaborative thread. Use it for collecting/curating information only and limit discussion to a minimum.
Adding the following as collaborators... Anybody else wants to chip in? Let me know.

It's better we yet find provide proper source, specifying it otherwise may risk its removal if anyone raises objection. Even if we don't have a news source or video, we can cite event here for details.

IAF to operationalise second Tejas squadron in Sulur in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday
New Delhi, May 25


The Indian Air Force will operationalise its second squadron comprising indigenously developed light combat aircraft Tejas on Wednesday at Sulur airbase near Coimbatore.



Chief of Air Staff Air Chief Marshal RKS Bhadauria will operationalise the 18 Squadron which is codenamed ‘Flying Bullets’.


“The squadron will be equipped with light combat aircraft Tejas aircraft and it will be the second IAF squadron to fly Tejas,” an IAF spokesperson said.


The Tejas is a fourth-generation combat aircraft developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency and the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.


It is equipped with a fly-by-wire flight control system, integrated digital avionics and multimode radar.


The Indian Air Force has already placed an order for 40 Tejas aircraft and is likely to seal a contract very soon with the HAL for another 83 aircraft at a cost of around Rs 38,000 crore.


The 18 squadron was formed in 1965 with the motto ‘Teevra aur Nirbhaya’ meaning ‘swift and fearless’. The squadron was flying MiG 27 aircraft before it was number plated or decommissioned April 15, 2016.


The squadron was resurrected on April 1 at Sulur. It actively participated in the 1971 war with Pakistan. It earned the sobriquet of ‘Defenders of Kashmir Valley’ by being the first to land and operate from Srinagar.


The Squadron was presented with President's Standard in November 2015. PTI
Will add to Tejas wiki page after it is done.
