Any news about the launch of India's LCA (renamed TEJAS)? Are they planning on selling it outside India??

"India is to induct two squadrons of the long-delayed Tejas Light Combat Aircraft from 2010, with up to six squadrons possible if the first batch impress in operations.

The decision is a shot in the arm for the programme, which national research organisation Aeronautical Development Agency developed and state-owned contractor Hindustan Aeronautics is responsible for production.

The long-delayed and much derided aircraft was to enter service early this decade, but design and performance issues and problems with the development of an indigenous engine have delayed it."


This is assuming they would use an alternative engine, or there wouldn't be further problems with the Kaveri.
