Tejas Mk2 and AMCA will be available to Tejas Mk1 buyers

R Madhavan, Chairman and Managing Director of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL), told PTI in an interview that nations that will purchase Tejas Mk1A will also have access to alternative availability in Tejas Mark 2, and they can even think of AMCA when they enter production.

According to Malaysian media reports, the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) may announce the winner of the contest for the supply of 18 light combat aircraft (LCA) in August. Argentina and Malaysia have also been offered the Tejas Mk1A.

The Malaysian Defense Ministry will be able to purchase of Tejas Mk1A jets with Indian avionics like Uttam AESA Fire Control Radar with Indian weapons systems like Astra Mk1 BVRAAM and also the ability to operate Russian R-73 and R-77 after HAL already offered the RMAF a package deal that will also see HAL providing spares and supplies for its current Russian Su-30MKM fleet.
