Light Combat Aircraft - TEJAS

Here is the Video of LCA developed indigenously by India. Tejas is the first supersonic combat aircraft.If LCA succeeds, India may go ahead with development of the MCA, a stealthy twin-engined jet.

I shall post the plans of MCA later. But first is first.

I am quiet curious about one thing in this video that throughout this flight the wheels of the plane were not rolled in. Normally right after the flight the wheels go in....Any comments

I did notice the same, dont the wheels produce a lag. Great that India made their first Indigenous combat Aircraft.

I wonder if it is the first supersonic fighter aircraft in the world or just India?

ps: It needs to get loaded with more missles!!

Thanks, nice video.

Looks good. Wish i hadn't played videogames when i was kid and gotten a specs.

Feels good to see a woeking prototype despite red tapism and lack of technology inputs.

Like others. i noticed the flight wheels not moving in and this is quite scrupulous, for there wasn't any parameters that were tested in the flight too.

Must've been a politically motivated quickly done test-flight.

Indian Air Force: Lets get more of our indigenous aircraft up there....quick.

To answer the questions of people who wanted to know why the wheels were not retracted. It's a safety issue. You never do that for 1st flight test according to test protocol. I am an Aerospace Engg worked with HAL and was involved in flight tests of other aircrafts (to add credibility to this post).

It is protocol issue plus retractable wheels etc are done later. This was the first PUBLIC flight of the aircraft and it had already flown quite a few hours before being brought in open. As for the more missiles - I think it has in all 8 hard points and ofcourse it was not loaded during this demonstration flight.
