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 Indian Air Force Tejas Mk2 is farfetched upgrade for the Tejas aircraft that may represent the introduction of a more powerful engine and stealth features. The Indian Air Force plans call for the procurement of 105 aircraft worth $15 billion after 2025. As of December 2017, the Tejas Mk2 program was put on hold in favor of the Mk1A aircraft. As of March 2018, the Indian Air Force wanted 201 Tejas Mk2 jets.
