Earlier on November 25, Prime Minister Narendra Modi visited Hindustan Aeronautics Limited in Bengaluru after his maiden sortie on LCA Tejas twin seater aircraft in Bengaluru. The Prime Minister had a look at production facilities of LCA Tejas aircraft in Bengaluru and was briefed about the technology intensive work being done at HAL towards realising the vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat. He was apprised about the initiatives being taken by HAL towards ramping capacities and capabilities by HAL. The Prime Minister visited the LCA Tejas Final Assembly and discussed capabilities of the aircraft. He was briefed about the capabilities of Tejas – a lightweight, all weather multi-role aircraft.
Tejas has been operationally deployed with the Indian Air Force and will be the mainstay of IAF fighter fleet in years to come. The aircraft is capable of undertaking offensive air support role as well as ground attach roles and is quite superior to its contemporaries.
