India’s indigenous Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas participated in the Bahrain International Air Show 2016 on Thursday. This was the first appearance of Tejas at a foreign air show. LCA Tejas has not been inducted into the IAF



Powerful in terms of manoeuvring.<3>

Low cost alternatives to other weapon systems are going to be the bread and butter for India's rising defense industry. I also like India's EM bomb, because it fries all electronics in a 20 mile radius. Of course, other countries have followed suit. But still the first to market gets an advantage.

Pakistanis used to laugh at the Tejas but we don't hear much now after the show.

On aside note: What happened to the Rafale deal? Has the deal been signed?

Not yet. But Hollande is the chief guest for the Republic Day parade, just like Obama was last year. And French troops will be participating in the parade, which showcases the strength of our relationship. Rafale deal is as good as done.
