By WritetakeBengaluru, Feb 26: Within a month after scripting history in Bahrain with its maiden flying display outside Indian skies, the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas is ready for the next mission.
Sources confirm to OneIndia on Thursday that two Tejas variants are likely to be part of the upcoming Iron Fist, set to begin on March 18.
A total of three Tejas variants will be made ‘hot-ready’ for Iron Fist, with one being on the stand-by mode.
Iron Fist is IAF’s largest fire power demonstration event with the network-centric warfare capabilities being exhibited to fullest. It is scheduled to begin at the Chandan Field Firing Range in Jaisalmer from March 18.
An IAF official says that the Tejas team has been asked to report at Jaisalmer on March 2.
