India’s indigenous Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas participated in the Bahrain International Air Show 2016 on Thursday. This was the first appearance of Tejas at a foreign air show.

LCA Tejas has not been inducted into the IAF yet. Starting in 1984, Tejas has been designed and developed by Aeronautical Development Agency with Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd and Defence Research and Development Organisation.
