One Response to Tejas Fighters Will Be Raised In Bangalore.

  1. Bangalore is not an FOB of IAF, it has no strategic importance for India vis a vis china or pak. This means alot however what this basically means is that IAF has no confidence in LCA and is not ready to deploy it along side an FOB cuz that would be too great a risk considering the fragile platform and its capacity to actually fly for a conflict. Tejas just failed its envisioned so called objective. too bad.
