What seems like a marketing strategy that has been pulled out of the US playbook, Chairman and Managing Director of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL), R Madhavan, told PTI in an interview that countries that will procure Tejas Mk1A will also have an access to alternative availability in Tejas Mark 2 and they can even think of AMCA when they enter production.

Malaysia and Egypt are two countries that have been offered Tejas Mk1A with talks also have been held with Argentina, looking at Malaysian media reports, the winner of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) tender for the supply of 18 light combat aircraft (LCA) might be announced in August.

RMAF already has been offered a packaged deal by the HAL that will also see HAL providing spares and supplies for its current Russian Su-30MKM fleet along with that India has agreed to deal in a palm oil barter deal that will allow the Malaysian Defence ministry to make a better case for the purchase of Tejas Mk1A jets with Indian Avionics like Uttam AESA Fire Control Radar with Indian weapons systems like Astra Mk1 BVRAAM and also ability to operate Russian R-73 and R-77 BVRs.
