The Argentine Air Force is putting together a team of specialists of pilots and technicians that will be visiting India around Aero India 2023 to evaluate the LCA-Tejas Mk1 fighter jet that is on offer to the country.
A team of senior Argentinian military officials were in India in October last year and visited the HAL facility in Bangalore and were given access to Prachand-Light Combat Helicopter, LUH and LCA-Tejas aircraft.
HAL has offered its LCA-Tejas Mk1A aircraft without British components for which it will brief about the customisation program that will be initiated if Argentina places orders from India to the officials who will be visiting India this time.
idrw.org has been told that in their last visit to India, Argentinian military officials wanted to brief them now many components LCA-Tejas has that are of British origin and how HAL plans to replace them and the required timeframe.
Specialists of pilots and technicians from the Argentine Air Force already visited China and got a detailed briefing and evaluated its JF-17 Block III aircraft in May last year and in October they also evaluated Danish F-16 that is on offer.
