The range will always get updated from time to time. Tejas was initially rated for only 3.25 tonnes payload, then 3.5, now 4T with significant improvement in flight profile. As it gets exploit more, more info will tumble out. The ferry range is 3200km officially while it has travelled 3150km nearly. Which means it should have at least 10% of fuel left for safety reasons. Which itself makes the ferry range around 3400km.

Looks stunning.

Tejas Mk1 FOC full aerial display at Singapore Air Show 2022. Very energetic, superb roll rate and very high instantaneous turn rates.


In coming months you will see/hear lot of local replacements for imported items.

The way I am seeing things are moving very fast and lots of MSMEs are jumping in to cash in the opportunity of PLI & ABA schemes

Tejas might have been midair refuelled before leaving Indian coastline. So unless iaf or drdo say it . There's no range increase at all.

Singapore's Ministry Of Defence has released an awesome compilation of Tejas. Don't forget to turn up the volume!

next month Tejas will exercise in UK with F-35, Typhoon, Gripen etc.

So all but one of the FOC fighters are flying!
Good job by HAL

Yes they've met their target. 31 of the single seat Tejas Mk1 fighters have flown or are with their squadrons. Last one remaining and then it's onto the Tejas Mk1 FOC trainers, of which 8 are to be built.

Simultaneously the Mk1A testing will be in full swing and all production activities will gear up towards manufacturing the 73 single seat Mk1A fighters.

Meanwhile, HAL had this poster for the LCA Lead In Fighter Trainer (LIFT) that is being offered to Malaysia. The weapons list is from the Tejas Mk1A, including the dual racks for ASRAAMs and another dual rack for the ASPJ+ASRAAM. Surprisingly, the R-73E and Python V cannot be carried on the dual racks, likely due to the large number of control surfaces on them. ASRAAM being much sleeker with no control surfaces allows for dual carriage.

Hammer, Griffin LGB, NG-LGB (an indigenous LGB), JDAM, SAAW, 1000 kg, 500 kg, 250 kg HSLD,

FO7CbQHaIAAqDvs


Very good list of weapons including WVR, BVR missiles, dumb bombs, PGMs, LGBs. Only thing missing is the NG-ARM for SEAD/DEAD missions. And an AShM.

As per new specifications, MTOW is increased to 14.3 yons surpassing Gripen. Tejas can fly at just 80 nautical miles but at 100 nautical miles, software eill take over the cpntrol and stabilize Tejas.
