Bangalore IAF HAL TEJAS LSP - 4 Maiden Flight June 2010

GE Aviation engine bid lowest for India's jet fighter HAL LCA Tejas Bangalore, Sep 30 (IANS) General Electric's subsidiary GE Aviation was declared the lowest bidder for supplying engines to power India's second generation Hal lca Tejas fighters, the Light Combat Aircraft HAL LCA Mark-2, a senior official said Thursday. GE Aviation emerged as the lowest bidder for supplying about 100 engines GE-F414 to fit into the LCA TEJAS Mk-2,' Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) Chief Controller (R&D) Prahlada told IANS here. Europe's Eurojet, a sister concern of Eurofighter that manufactures jet engines for its Typhoon fighter, was the other bidder short-listed for the multi-billion rupee tender after the global tender that was was floated in 2009 by the Indian defence ministry. Price negotiations and contract finalisation will be worked in the next two months,' Prahlada said. 'GE Aviation will deliver 20 GE-F414 engines from 2014 and the rest will be manufactured in India under transfer of technology to our defence establishments.' According to a statement by the state-run DRDO, the price negotiating committee for the alternate engine declared GE Aviation the lowest bidder after commercial quotes of both the bidders were compared following evaluation and acceptance of their technical offer. We have decided to go for a new engine for the HAL LCA Tejas Mark Mk-2 after the Indian Air Force IAF sought a better engine with higher rate of performance in terms of speed, thrust and vector than GE-404 engines being used in HAL LCA Tejas Mark-1,' Prahlada pointed out. The IAF Indian air force has placed an order with the defence behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd HAL to supply 40 HAL LCA Tejas fighters to Indian air force. The GE-F414 engines will be developed by the Gas Turbine Research Establishment (GTRE) in Bangalore in collaboration with other DRDO agencies such as Aeronautical Development Agency and HAL,' Prahlada said. The Kaveri engine, which is in the advance stage of development at GTRE, will be fitted in the first generation LCA Tejas Mk-1.

HAL Tejas india's one of the most powerful jet watch in detail 720p*
The HAL Tejas (Sanskrit pronunciation Sanskrit:तेजस) is an Indian single-seat, single-jet engine, multi-role light fighter developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited. It is a tailless,[N 1] compound delta wing design powered by a single engine. It came from the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) programme, which began in the 1980s to replace India's ageing MiG-21 fighters. Later, the LCA was officially named "Tejas",[5][N 2] meaning "Radiant" by the then Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee.[6] Tejas has a pure double delta wing configuration (wing root leading edge sweep 50°, outer wing leading edge sweep 62.5° and trailing edge forward sweep 4°),[7] with no tailplanes or canard, and a single dorsal fin. It integrates technologies such as relaxed static stability, fly-by-wire flight control system, multi-mode radar, integrated digital avionics system, composite material structures, and a flat rated engine. It is supersonic and highly maneuverable, and is the smallest and lightest in its class of contemporary combat aircraft.[8][9] The Tejas is the second supersonic fighter developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) after the HAL HF-24 Marut. The Indian Air Force (IAF) was reported to have a requirement for 200 single-seat and 20 two-seat conversion trainers, while the Indian Navy might order up to 40 single-seaters to replace its Sea Harrier FRS.51 and Harrier T.60.[10] The Tejas was cleared in January 2011 for use by Indian Air Force pilots. It received the second of three levels of operational clearance on 20 December 2013.[11][12] On 17 January 2015, the first Tejas LCA was officially inducted into the IAF, with final operational clearance (FOC) expected by late 2015. The first Tejas squadron, to be based at Bengaluru, is scheduled to enter service by 2017-2018. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: indian air force present and future fighter aircraft 2016-2025. hd* -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
