The US military aviation giant, Lockheed Martin, is initiating efforts to collaborate with Indian suppliers to make its F-21 fighter jet locally that it will be producing for India.

The firm and six other global companies have been engaged in a tender to manufacture 110 fighter jets for the Indian Air Force.

With additional space to add new capabilities and unique electronic warfare, the plane is equipped with enhanced thrust settings with greater stand-off capability. Also it will stay up longer with lesser fuel burn as it will be manufactured with modern state-of-the-art facility.
