An order is to be placed by India Air Force to buy 100 modified Tejas aircraft that would beat the Pakistani competitor on four parameters: - reach weapons, ability to kill and survivability in addition to the previously ordered 20 Aircrafts. The procurement of Tejas will fill an acute shortage as Mirage, Jaguars and MiG-29s are due to retire in the next 10 years.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has been asked by Indian Air Force to add newer capabilities in the Tejas. The new specifications include Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar, along range beyond visual range missile, air-to-air refueling and electronic warfare capability which will enhance survivability of the aircraft.

IAF is waiting for the assurance of the design and development of Tejas as per the specifications provided by IAF and thereafter, IAF will confirm to order 100 additional aircrafts after the delivery of first 20.
