In India, the first test flight of a light fighter Tejas FOC


The Indian aircraft industry has come one step closer to the transfer of LLC Tejas FOC supersonic fighter to the troops. It seems that soon the Indian Air Force (IAF) will have at its disposal a new combat vehicle. It was created by the domestic aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).


It is reported by the publication Zee Media.

Yesterday, the new aircraft made its first test flight. It was controlled by the former commander of the air force of the country.

Tejas FOC (S-21) stayed in the air for forty minutes. He flew from the HAL airfield in Bangalore, which is considered the technological capital of India, circled the city and made a landing.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited plans to transfer 2021 new fighters to the air force by the end of April 16.

In addition to HAL, the Directorate for Aviation Quality Assurance (DGAQA), the Center for the Assessment and Certification of Aircraft Airworthiness (CEMILAC), the IAF and the Agency for Aviation Development (ADA) took part in the development of the combat vehicle.

In a press release from the defense department, it was noted that the rapid creation of the first Tejas FOC aircraft allows us to hope that the remaining 15 planned units will be delivered to the troops this fiscal year.

An earlier version of the Tejas LLC fighter is already in service with the Indian Air Force.

    India is one of the few countries that produce its warplanes.

    Although the zoo in the Indian Armed Forces is quiet horror))

    Another cut of money associated with the production of non-viable military equipment. The tank has already done, now the plane, what is the next?

      On the contrary, the effective contribution of money to the Indian national aviation industry. It’s not necessary to do the best, just do the good. And they made a decent tank, and this plane. India is following the right path of technological self-development.

        -Managed by the former commander of the air force of the country.
        If anything, the former is not a pity.

        Too shy to ask - which side are they good? Given how much "dough" they "tumbled" into it.

      It’s just to learn from mistakes. So the Indians are doing the right thing, investing in production on their territory. At first, it will turn out nonsense and a pun, but over time it will come out and "having no analogues in the world." We also need to think more often about promising design, realizing that sometimes this money will not get real return. But on the other hand, they will be invested in their own country, in their people (even partially stolen, but remaining in Russia, they will work for Russia), in new technologies, in new equipment.

        What time is it? Since the 80s they have been slandering, finally drank. And then, so-so plane, the benefit of his own.

    circled over the city and landed

    We will replace the city with ours and we will observe flows of boiled urine like "Putin wants to kill the city floor with a fallen plane."

      Brother, there’s only one sentence - "after thirty-five years, the promising fighter has finally been finalized." And all the hysteria is provided wassat

        thirty thirty years later, a promising fighter finally finalized

        Well, why aren’t you so glamorous - it’s not so democratic to remind civilized world about reality. While still in school I read about the development of Tejas, and next year the thirtieth anniversary of the release ...

    Here are the tests that you need. And does it really matter what kills you - the plague, the virus, tuberculosis or Tejas ...
