India Orders 83 Improved Tejas Fighter Jets

Indian aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aerospace Limited (HAL) signed an agreement to deliver 73 new Tejas Mark 1A Light Combat Aircraft jets and 10 Tejas Mark 1 two-seat training jets to the Indian Air Force.

The order actually falls a bit under the anticipated request for 83 Mark 1As and 18 trainers, perhaps due to financial exigencies imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It supplements the initial order for 40 of the base Mark 1 model (including 8 trainers) roughly halfway through delivery to the Indian Air Force.
