Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has announced positive developments concerning the LCA Tejas Mk2 fighter jet program. The company has begun manufacturing the prototype, marking a significant milestone in the project’s timeline.

According to Jayadeva EP, DGM at HAL, the company has already begun manufacturing the Tejas Mk2 prototype. This signifies a significant step forward, with the initial structural assembly already underway.

HAL has provided an updated timeline for the Tejas Mk2 program. While earlier reports suggested a March 2026 rollout for the prototype, there’s a positive revision. The full aircraft might be ready for rollout much earlier, potentially in the later part of 2025. The first flight, however, remains targeted for March 2026.

This revised timeline suggests HAL is making faster progress than initially anticipated. The early completion of the prototype would allow for more pre-flight testing and data collection, potentially leading to a smoother transition to the first flight phase.

The successful rollout and first flight of the Tejas Mk2 prototype will be crucial milestones. These achievements will pave the way for further testing, refinement, and eventual production of this advanced fighter jet.

The Tejas Mk2, with its more powerful engine, improved radar systems, and enhanced payload capacity, holds immense potential for bolstering the Indian Air Force’s capabilities. HAL’s accelerated development efforts are a welcome sign for India’s aspirations in indigenous fighter jet technology.
