India’s own Light Combat Aircraft Tejas will enthrall the audience at Bahrain International Airshow starting on Thursday as the country hopes to explore potential export opportunities.

The two Limited Series Production (LSP) planes will give a flying display through a series of aerobatic manoeuvres such as 8-g pull, vertical loop, slow fly past and barrel roll. “It is important that indigenous aircraft fly outside India in international air shows. HAL is proud to be associated with the design, development and production of Tejas.

The Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) «Tejas» is an Indian single-seat, single-jet engine, multi-role light fighter developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. It is a tailless, compound delta wing design powered by a single engine.

The Tejas is the second supersonic fighter developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) after the HAL HF-24 Marut. The Indian Air Force (IAF) was reported to have a requirement for 200 single-seat and 20 two-seat conversion trainers, while the Indian Navy might order up to 40 single-seaters to replace its Sea Harrier FRS.51 and Harrier T.60.
