India Offers To Sell 18 Fighter Jets To Malaysia​

India Offers To Sell 18 Fighter Jets To Malaysia

The Tejas has been beset by design and other challenges


New Delhi:
India has offered to sell 18 light-combat aircraft (LCA) "Tejas" to Malaysia, the defence ministry said on Friday, adding that Argentina, Australia, Egypt, the United States, Indonesia, and the Philippines were also interested in the single-engine jet.

The government last year gave a $6 billion contract to state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd for 83 of the locally produced Tejas jets for delivery starting around 2023 - four decades after it was first approved in 1983.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government, keen to reduce India's reliance on foreign defence equipment, has also been making diplomatic efforts to export the jets. The Tejas has been beset by design and other challenges, and was once rejected by the Indian Navy as too heavy.
The defence ministry told parliament that Hindustan Aeronautics in October last year responded to a request for proposal from the Royal Malaysian Air Force for 18 jets, offering to sell the two-seater variant of Tejas.

"Other countries which have evinced interest in the LCA aircraft are: Argentina, Australia, Egypt, USA, Indonesia, and Philippines," India's junior defence minister, Ajay Bhatt, told members of parliament in a written reply.
He said the country was also working on manufacturing a stealth fighter jet, but declined to given a timeline citing national security concerns.
Britain said in April it would support India's goal of building its own fighter jets. India currently has a mix of Russian, British and French fighter jets.
India is looking to ground all its Soviet-era Russian fighter jets, the MiG-21, by 2025, following a number of fatal crashes, the Times of India daily reported last month.

So there’s a platform India manufactures which it feels confident can match up to and exceed the performance of its peers. And here we have representatives of a country that sells re-stickered chinese jets - best described as ‘meh’ — laughing at it.

I think every day I find new expressions of irony here that would be impossible to find elsewhere.
Lols 65 to 70% parts imported in Tejas and designed barrowed from France.....What is indigenous in a failed product? Landing gear :lol:

Yup, same confidence you show in it every 26th of January. BTW, your so called Indigenous Tejas was induced by every major aircraft manufacturer around the globe.
As for your smart sunil comment, the Chinese for some reasons want their jet to be manufactured in Pakistan....marketed flown and displayed around the world by the PAF.

Let's drum roll Tejas.

The only thing Argentina, Australia, Egypt, USA, Indonesia, and Philippines are interested in is how crap the Tejas is. It is a failed project and is reflected by the face saving small order of 83 aircraft ordered by the India gov. The Indian Airforce really didn't want it but were arm twisted by the Indian gov to buy it.

The irony is jackass Bhaktora Indians waking up everyday to try and register on PDF to then go around posting regarding the so called restickered jets just so they can get some self affirmation.
Low self esteem cannot get any lower

Which unfortunately takes away from the actual effort put into their projects because they do eventually learn from failures. But their almost genetically compelled need to suck their own junk until its shriveled dried almost drowns any hopes that humility and being a nationalist Indian can coexist.

Apparently more once the Mk2 comes online so it will come of age albeit fairly late and costing the lives of many a IAF pilot who had to sit in a Mig-21 instead waiting for this promised capability.

The reason migs aren’t retired is because of wonderful planning of IAF, retiring all of bison fleet will reduce our fighter squadron strength to peanuts and inductions are slow.

Again - no one but Indians to blame for the loss of other Indians.
Only because of pride and ego rather than understanding their own limitations and working pragmatically.
