Tejas Light Combat Aircraft: two-seater trainer photo


On popular demand, here's the first photograph of the first prototype of the two-seater trainer version of the Tejas LCA. I took the photograph at HAL Bangalore. Please reproduce only with due credit.

The trainer, HAL hopes, will fly within three months. The under-construction version that you see in the photograph was about to be taken for its "structural coupling test", in which various sensors are excited and the aircraft response evaluated.

Designing the two-seater has taken some doing. The second cockpit has been installed at the place where all the avionics and controls are fitted for the single-seater version. The duplication of controls, and the reconfiguration of equipment has required major redesign.

But anyway, here it is. Enjoy!

  1. Ajai. Great photos. Please water mark your photos before you post them on the web. Should be quite easy to do so. I am sure any standard image manipulation software.. maybe even the one that came with your camera itself must be able to do it.

  7. Harrys pictures seemed to have been scanned from a brochure or magazine. While he does get credit for the first pictures, ajai should get the credit for the first exclusive digital hi-res images of the trainers.

  10. AESA radar for Tejas coming from EADS! Thats surprising cause there were two simultaneous efforts or atleast talk of developing AESA radar. One with Russia (by LRDE) and other with Israel (HAL).

    And it has to be technology transfer else it does not make any sense.
