The biennial exercise LIMA will commence from March 26 in Malaysia.
Last year, India-made Tejas participated in Gagan Shakti, the 14-day war exercise. 
The Tejas LCA is a supersonic, single-seat, single-engine multirole light fighter jet that has been under development since 1983 by state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).
The ninth IAF Tejas LCA completed its maiden flight in March. On July 1, 2016, the LCA Tejas was inducted into the 'Flying Daggers' 45 Squadron of the IAF and has been placed to replace the MiG-21 aircraft. (ANI)
