Tejas Fighters Will Be Raised In Bangalore.

The first squadron of the indigenous Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas will be raised in Bangalore.

Commandant of the ASTE, Air Commodore BR Krishna said that
two pilots have been identified by the Bangalore-based flight testing
establishment for carrying out extensive tests.
The first squadron
of LCA will be named Squadron 45. The squadron comprising 20 aircraft
will be known as Flying Daggers and will later be moved to the Sulur Air
Base near Coimbatore.

    Bangalore is not an FOB of IAF, it has no strategic importance for India vis a vis china or pak. This means alot however what this basically means is that IAF has no confidence in LCA and is not ready to deploy it along side an FOB cuz that would be too great a risk considering the fragile platform and its capacity to actually fly for a conflict. Tejas just failed its envisioned so called objective. too bad.
