Description: The Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) has been developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) to meet the requirements of the Air Force of India as a front-line multi-role fighter through 2020. It features a tailless, single-seat, single-engine, delta-wing configuration for enhanced maneuverability as well as short takeoff and landing. It will be able to accommodate air-to-air and air-to-surface weapons. The LCA weapon system leans on seven hard points, three below each wing and one inner hard point. Each hard point can carry a variety of bombs, missiles, and rocket launchers to perform air-to-air and air-to-surface missions. The aircraft sensors are fully compatible with beyond visual range air-to-air missiles and additionally it can be equipped with electronic warfare payloads and other equipment.

The Tejas Mark-1A is an improved version of the Tejast Mark-1 aircraft featuring new active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar, air-to-air refueling pods, self-prepetition electronic warfare jammers, improved avionics and core systems. The Indian Air Force is expected to place an order for 83 Tejas Mark-1A jets worth $8 billion before 2020. The AESA radar might be supplied by Thales.
