WATCH | Maiden landing of naval version of Tejas on aircraft carrier

New Delhi (NVI): In a significant step towards India developing its own deck-based fighter jets, a naval variant of light combat aircraft Tejas landed successfully on the country’s only aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya, on January 11.

The aircraft, developed by DRDO did a successful ‘arrested landing’ on INS Vikramaditya at around 10 am Saturday. This is the second successful arrested landing of an LCA after a similar operation at a shore-based test facility in Goa last September.
