IAF agrees to induct 324 indigenously developed light combat aircraft Tejas
NEW DELHI, Mar 15 (Agencies): After being critical of the Tejas fighter jets for several years, the Indian Air Force (IAF) has now agreed to induct as many as 324 indigenously developed light combat aircraft (LCA), reports said on Thursday. The induction of 324 Tejas fighter jets will make up for the IAF's depleting number of squadron strength. The IAF has, for years, maintained that the Tejas fighters are not combat-ready even after three decades of development given its limited range.

The IAF, however, demands that the Tejas Mark II jets should be entirely “new fighters” with “better avionics, radars, enhanced weapons car...
