This could go down as one of the biggest defence orders placed by an Indian PSU company with a global conglomerate. State owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited or HAL placed an order for Rs.5,375 crore value to purchase 99 F404-GE-IN20 engines coupled with the necessary support services. This order has been placed with GE Aviation, a unit of General Electric, to power its Tejas LCA or light combat aircraft.

This is interestingly the largest single order ever placed by HAL and shows the grand defence spending plans of the government. The PSU is currently exploring the potential of exporting the Tejas LCA, which is a top-of the line product. HAL will supply 83 LCAs to the IAF with enhanced GD F404 engines. These upgraded engines from GE incorporate latest hot section materials as well as Full Authority Digital Engine Control or FADEC for more reliability.
