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.
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.
next month Tejas will exercise in UK with F-35, Typhoon, Gripen etc.Singapore's Ministry Of Defence has released an awesome compilation of Tejas. Don't forget to turn up the volume!
So all but one of the FOC fighters are flying!
Good job by HAL
