<p>India and the United States today commenced their 16th edition of bilateral military exercises Yudh Abhyas at Mahajan Field Firing Ranges in Bikaner of Rajasthan.<br />

<p>The opening ceremony witnessed unfurling of the national flags of both countries amidst playing of the national anthems.</p>
<p>Aiming to replace the Russian-origin fighter aircraft MiG-29Ks from the Indian Navy, DRDO is working to develop twin-engine deck based fighter jet and the first prototype is expected to be rolled out by 2026.&nbsp;<br />
&nbsp;</p>

<p>Defence Research and Development Organisation's Aeronautical Development Agency and the Indian Navy are jointly working on it at the design stage. The aircraft would operate from the Indian Navy’s current and future aircraft carriers.&nbsp;<br />
&nbsp;</p>

<p>Talking to Asianet Newsable, Light Combat Aircraft Navy MK-1 Project Director P Thangavel said, "We have successfully conducted the first flight test of LCA and last year it was also landed on INS Vikramaditya. The Indian Navy has a requirement of twin-engine and advanced medium combat aircraft. We have been working on these projects for 6 months. It would be a big jet but with medium weight. The aircraft would be having wing folding capacity so it can be taken to the hangar for maintenance and storage."</p>
<p>The initial plan is to amalgamate it with indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas.<br />
&nbsp;</p>

<p>Currently, Brahmos is 9m long and weighs around three tonnes. Integrating it with smaller platforms was causing issues, as&nbsp;the missile's length was longer.<br />
&nbsp;</p>

<p>"We had some issues with platforms, which are smaller in size and cannot take such big missiles. The company has conceptualised another system called BrahMos NG, which is much sleeker, stealthier and much smaller in the dimension. We are expecting it would be around 1.5-1.6 tonnes, around 6m long and it can travel almost the same distance 290 km," BrahMos Chief General Manager Praveen Pathak told Asianet Newsable.<br />
&nbsp;</p>

<p>Lighter weight and the smaller size are expected to give a fillip to the speed.</p>
<p>State-owned aircraft-maker Hindustan Aeronautics Limited-developed Light Combat Helicopter is the only chopper which can land, take off and hover at a height of 4.7km, HAL Director (Engineering and R&amp;D) Arup Chatterjee has claimed.<br />
&nbsp;</p>

<p>Talking to Asianet Newsable during the ongoing 13th edition of Aero India show in Bengaluru, Chatterjee said, "This helicopter is the only helicopter in the world which can land, take off as well as hover at the height of 4.7 km. No other helicopter can do that."</p>
<p>This strong V-shaped recovery of economic activity is further confirmed in the IIP data.&nbsp;<br />

<p>The enemy outnumbered Indian troops and he was injured while carrying out his duty. In spite of grievous wounds by the enemy, he continued rendering medical assistance to injured soldiers and saved many lives. He finally succumbed to his injuries.&nbsp;</p>
