https://twitter.com/indiandefence11/sta ... 5070754816 ---> Tejas features an Automatic Pilot (Initiated) Built-In Test (PBIT) with a slight push of a button which initiates a sequence of tests to check onboard systems are working properly or not. The whole process takes about a minute after which a green GO signal is flashed.

Drag & Drop for larger size....

https://twitter.com/indiandefence11/sta ... 7066397697 ---> DO YOU KNOW: Tejas was put through some 7 Lakh (0.7 Million) tests by Indian Air Force before granting it a quality certification. Almost 50-60% of the development period of Tejas was spent in these tests which marks the unique safety feature of Tejas.

I love this tweet!! Perhaps I should put it on page 1 of this dhaaga!!!

Is the photographer using special effects in this photo? Usually Tejas is always very MATT FINISH, but here its shining glossy.

Im still holding out for uttam in Mk1A, anyway they don't seem to be in a hurry to order it. They have 3+ years to get it ready for production, else wait for another 8 years to use it in Mk2.

83 pieces of 2052 have already been ordered. For it tam to work on a frontline aircraft you also need few more things, a mature bvr missile to be guided (and thus integrated to it), ability to slave even wvr missile ( not guide) and a ew system that works with it. To get all we are at least 5-8 years away. Most prudent is to get 2052, derby I and whole suite of ew gear. We cross this hurdle in lca Mk 2

Do we have someone on BRF who has access to Janes old articles..? I wanted to get copies of some articles on LCA from early 1990s. I don't see the articles from Google at all. I have access to commercial subscription which allows me to search but not see the articles.

There is a lot of going in there and yes special capture and special effects are being used to enhance the shimmering of the sunlight / light of the metallic body. The a/c is not that glossy actually.

I was thinking of filing an RTI for latest AR. But unfortunately ADA is a Society and it doesn't come under MoD. So no way of filing online RTI thru the RTI portal, at least I didn't see ADA in the list.

They can always integrate a western one no? Fantastic news. Almost too good to believe. I hope I don't get let down. This is driving my hopes almost too high. Sh!t, if they pick the Blunder now I would jump off a bridge. lol

I am sure HAL would happily do that, but the cost of integration with new radar and entire weapons suite integration with that Radar, would have to be amortized over the small order size, increasing the cost significantly. Not to mention timelines stretch. If the customer is OK with this then no problem.

The French had developed a AESA radar for Tejas, so an alternative is already available

Thales Radar Offered For HAL Tejas Mk-1A Combat Aircraft
The firm recently completed its initial flight test. “It is therefore ready and able to adapt to the tight schedule imposed by the Mk1A LCA,” the company release says.

The tests conducted during summer 2017 at the Cazaux air base in France, on a test bench aircraft, focused on metrological analyses of the radar performance. These test flights proved that the radar is fully operational and perfectly corresponds to the specific requirements of HAL for its combat and air superiority missions.

I know, and having an alternative is not same as been integrated. Easily 3-4yrs worth work.

Yes I am aware, this if selected can be integrated and tested by the time of delivery by starting work by early stages of trials by RMAF. It is not like Tejas is already selected and delivery to start soon

I would advise people to take this Malaysian contest a little lightly for now. this Malaysian order is some way off from going to the next stage, given that their govt. has not even "approved" the Light Fighter program, far from allocating any budget to it. There is NO money to buy new Light Fighters for the RMAF, not at least for the next 2 years. That may work out well for HAL, giving it time to have the Mk1A prototypes rolled out in time- OR if the RMAF's stated intent is to go with twin seaters then maybe the LCA SPORT trainer.

But it seems to me that the FA-50 or TA-50 will be the real front-runner given its somewhat lower cost and its export success.

From AW&ST

KUALA LUMPUR—A funding shortage has forced Malaysia to buy only one long-range air defense radar instead of the three sought by its air force.

The budget squeeze also means procurement of maritime patrollers, light attack aircraft and long-range drones will be delayed for at least two years. Funding for new fighters is not expected even next decade, Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) chief Gen. Affendi Buang said.
(He's referring to the heavier fighters that RMAF wanted earlier, not the Light Fighters)

The government has said Malaysia’s economic challenges mean military spending must remain a low priority. It also suggests that purchases should be made by barter.

The RMAF issued requests for information early this year for air-defense radars, maritime patrol aircraft, medium-altitude long-endurance drones and light combat aircraft (LCA). It wanted to buy three radars, four maritime patrollers, four surveillance drones and, initially, up to 12 LCAs.

However, only the purchase of a single air-defense radar has been approved, Affendi said in response to written questions from Aerospace DAILY. He did not say when the contract will be signed.

Procurement of maritime patrollers and drones also was approved but no money has been allocated, Affendi said, adding that funding probably will not be made available before the new five-year procurement cycle begins in 2021.

The service is pushing for the approval for the LCA program, he added. Funding for 12 aircraft could be made available in the next procurement cycle, with another 24 to be bought later.

LCAs are sought to replace aircraft in two categories: 13 BAE Systems Hawk Mk. 208 single-seat LCAs; and four Hawk Mk. 108 and seven Leonardo MB-339CM twin-seat trainers.

With the RMAF prioritizing the LCA, Affendi said it would defer an upgrade of the Hawk fleet that has been planned since 2013. If funds are approved for the LCA, the Hawks will be retired gradually as the new jets come into service.

Another RMAF official told Aerospace DAILY the chosen LCA type likely will be a twin-seater, such as the Korea Aerospace Industries T-50, Yakovlev Yak-130 or Leonardo M-346. Any of those three could be armed, making them comparable to such single-seat contenders as the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. Tejas and the JF-17 from Avic Chengdu and the Pakistan Aeronautical Complex.

As for the RMAF’s long-standing hope to buy multi-role combat aircraft (MRCA), Affendi said that was likely to be deferred past 2030.

Malaysia started the search for MRCAs in 2007 to replace F-5E Tigers and Mikoyan MiG-29s, but a shortage of funds prevented the purchase, even though the program got as far as shortlisting the Dassault Rafale and Eurofighter Typhoon in 2013.

The RMAF’s main fighter fleet comprises 18 Sukhoi Su-18MKM and eight BoeingF/A-18D Hornets.

Affendi said upgrades for RMAF C-130 Hercules airlifters and Sea King helicopters are being finalized, with contracts expected to be signed by year end.

Yes Kartik, but the article you posted mention LCAs a hundred times and have me thinking that they have all but decided on the LCA. How can we not be excited? I'm willing to drink a gallon of palm oil if it helps.

Arrest that huge retirement coming from the MiG-21s by concentrating with the local market.
We must we must sanction another line for the Manufacturing of the Tejas Mk1A

They’re calling the contest for a LCA class or Light Combat Aircraft, which doesn’t refer to the Tejas but to a class. Like the MRCA.

Trainer/LCA like Yak-130, T-50 and M-346 will be the leading contenders given the RMAF replacement requirements.

HAL cannot increase production numbers with orders like 16 IOC, 16 FOC.

There will no deliveries between April and October, because.. well there is nothing to deliver.


ok there's a long waiting time.hopefully some will be delivered around durga pujo/dashmi to be worshipped..

Good question. Has HAL applied for re-export license for the foreign origin components, particularly US origin ones..?? Any info available on this one..?

And in LCA Tejas we only have to apply for reexport license from USA Russia for R73 etcand ofcourse Israel. Totally acceptable to a Muslim country like Malaysia. I hope some LCA order are soon entered into.

Actually Israel will be the least of the problems - the fact that we will be the system integrator will allow them to export freely, and Malaysia will be mollified that they don't directly have to deal with Israel. Russia won't care as much, else the R73 will be swapped out for something else.
It is the US which is the big question mark here.
