Tejas fires missile, hits target
Tejas, India’s first indigenously designed, developed and produced fourth generation plus Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) achieved yet another milestone when on Saturday, its infrared air-to-
air missile hit its designated target with precision.
The test, demonstrating required parameters was conducted off the coast of Goa in Arabian Sea, and has taken the aircraft closer to its induction in Indian Air Force.
Avinash Chander, scientific adviser to defence minister and secretary, department of defence, said: ‘With this launch of a missile from Tejas and successfully hitting the target in the first shot, we have demonstrated the total weapon system capability of LCA Tejas’.
