In the midst of the Ukraine-Russia conflict, India decided not to deploy its combat aircraft in a multi-nation exercise in the UK. The Indian Air Force has decided not to deploy its aircraft in the UK for Exercise Cobra Warriors 2022. Five LCA Tejas fighter planes were to be sent by the Air Force for the exercise. The exercise involves the participation of Air Forces from the United Kingdom, Belgium, Saudi Arabia and Sweden.

The exercise was scheduled to take place between March 6 and 27. The exercise could also be called off completely.

This exercise was intended to provide operational exposure and share best practices among the participating air forces. It also aimed to enhance combat capability and strengthen friendships. An official statement stated that LCA Tejas will use this platform to show its operational and maneuverability.

India’s Tejas, an indigenously produced product, participated in the Singapore Air Show. Tejas is being promoted by India as an exportable product.

The LCA Tejas, indigenously-designed by the Aircraft Development Agency (ADA) of the Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO) and manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), is expected to be the backbone of the Indian Air Force in the future, as the mantra is self-reliance through reduced imports.
