HAL geared up for making 83 LCAs

  • The HAL awaits the formal order to produce 83 LCAs in the improved Mark 1A version, where many systems are totally new, according to its CMD R. Madhavan.
  • The HAL could produce 16 of these aircraft a year at its Bengaluru facility and could increase it to 20. 
  • Its design wing, the Aircraft Research and Design Centre, must first include the design changes over the earlier Mark 1 series before production began, he said.
