Srinagar . The Indian Air Force has deployed the Tejas MK-1 Light Combat Aircraft at the Avantipora airbase in Jammu and Kashmir. The army says its pilots are gathering flying experience in the valley. Kashmir is sensitive in terms of neighboring countries China-Pakistan. Tejas MK-1 is a multirole light combat aircraft that will further strengthen the Air Force in the jungle and mountainous terrain of Kashmir.

The Indian Air Force currently has 31 Tejas aircraft. Apart from this, the army keeps taking its aircraft to Jammu-Kashmir and Ladakh so that they get the experience of flying in the Himalayan valleys.

Indian Air Force is strongly supporting it by adding more capabilities to Tejas. The Air Force has already approved two of its squadrons for its initial and final operations.

Due to the crash of more than 400 MiG-21 aircraft in the last five decades, the Government of India wanted to replace it. Tejas succeeded in replacing the MiG-21. Due to the low weight, it can easily land and take off even on sea vessels.
