LCA-Mk1A UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • After some delay, the deliveries of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA)-Mk1A by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. 

  • (HAL) to the Indian Air Force (IAF) are now expected to begin by July-end with officials stating that the delay is due to supply chain issues, including at the HAL and at General Electric (GE) in delivering the engines.

  • The Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) programme was started by the Government of India in 1984 when they established the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) to manage the LCA programme.

  • LCA Tejas was designed and developed by India’s HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited).

  • It replaced the ageing Mig 21 fighter planes.

  • It was in 2003 that the Light Combat Aircraft programme was named ‘Tejas’ (meaning radiance in Sanskrit) by the then PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee.

  • It is the second supersonic fighter jet that was developed by HAL (the first one being HAL HF-24 Marut).

  • LCA Tejas is a single-engine multirole light combat aircraft.

  • It is the lightest and smallest multi-role supersonic fighter aircraft in its class.

  • It is designed to carry a range of air-to-air, air-to-surface, precision-guided, and standoff weaponry.

  • Tejas has a single-engine, compound Delta wing, and has a tailless design.

  • The idea behind the LCA programme was to expand and develop India’s indigenous aerospace capabilities.

  • Since the 1970s, the MiG 21 planes were the mainstay of the Indian Air Force. 

  • The primary goal of the LCA programme was to replace the ageing MiGs.

  • The secondary goal was the advancement of indigenous domestic aviation capabilities.

  • HAL plans to deliver 123 Tejas aircraft to the Indian Air Force by 2024-25.
