The indigenously developed aircraft Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas will take part in a multi-nation exercise in the United Kingdom next month.
The aircraft is a part of the Indian Air Force contingent, which will participate in a multi-nation air exercise named ‘Ex Cobra Warrior 22’ at Waddington in the UK from March 6 to March 22. LCA Tejas will demonstrate its maneuverability and operational capability.
The exercise is aimed at providing operational exposure and sharing best practices amongst the participating Air Forces, thereby enhancing combat capability and forging bonds of friendship.
Five Tejas aircraft will fly to the UK and IAF C-17 aircraft will provide the necessary transport support for induction and de-induction.
