    what is being seen as an endorsement to the Indian Tejas’s quality, Malaysia may be shifting its interest from the Sino-Pakistani JF-17 ‘Thunder’ to India’s Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) and is reportedly keen on buying 30 such planes.

    Kuala Lumpur has asked New Delhi to send a Tejas fighter plane to the Langkawi International Maritime and Aerospace Exhibition 2019 (LIMA’19) which is Malaysia’s premier defence exhibition, as reported by Business Standard.

    Malaysia switching to the Indian fighter instead of the one developed jointly by China and Pakistan will be the second setback to Islamabad after Sri Lanka earlier backed away from the JF-17 despite expressing interest in it.

    The Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), though not fully developed, is considered far deadlier than the JF-17 Thunder fighter by many experts.

    The current version of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’s (HAL) Tejas might be slightly costlier than its Pakistani counterpart with the former priced at $28.5 million and the latter at $25 million. However, Tejas reportedly offers better performance compared to the Pakistani jet, which has been developed jointly by the Chengdu Aircraft Industry Corporation of China and Pakistan Aeronautical Complex, Kamra.

    Tejas excels JF-17 in the technologies that are utilised in it, including lightweight composite material body, sophisticated quadruplex digital flight control system, microprocessor-based utility controls and the superior American GE-404IN engine among others.

    The Malaysian Air Force is already flying Sukhoi-30MKM, which is modelled on the IAF’s Sukhoi-30MKI.

    Its still under consideration. May the best Aircraft Win. Malaysians will be milking all parties to get a cost effective deal :D lets see who actually wins. Tejas has very less chance of winning in my opnion. While mig 35 and griphen might have higher chances.

    Malaysia only ask Indian LCA to come and tender and troll start to think LCA will steal the deal? Lol.

    I dare to bet even my account it will not win it. In fact, LCA will get humiliated by exposing all the flaws for everybody to see ..

    Sorry to correct you bro.....it will win the truck race

    Malaysia switching to the Indian fighter instead of the one developed jointly by China and Pakistan will be the second setback to Islamabad after Sri Lanka

    Has malaysia switched?
    Has malaysia disqualified the jf17
    Nigeria, myanmar and Azerbaijan are all wrong.

    Now who has bought tejas? NO ONE EVEN ITS FORCED ON THE AIRFORCE OF BHINDIA
