Pakistani JF-17, Indian HAL Tejas or Korean FA-50: Which Fighter Jet Will Malaysia Finally Buy?

Indian Air Force LCA Squadron “Flying Daggers” is in work since 1st July 2016, with the induction of IOC aircraft.

In April 2018, a Tejas fighter was successfully tested a Derby missile and recently, the naval Tejas achieved its first night-time halted landing at the shore-based test facility, two months after the first successful arrested landing. Halted landings are an essential part of aircraft carrier operations.

Tejas Mk-II’s preliminary design of the aircraft has been brought to a conclusion. But, the same is in the initial development stage. Induction & production can began only after successful development & test flight. HAL Hyderabad is an Avionics Division, and avionics related to HAL-manufactured platforms consisting of LCA are produced at this facility.
