New Delhi: India will launch a new small air scrappler aircraft for small planes and big planes this year, the country’s defence ministry said on Friday.
The scrapple aircraft is being developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd, the ministry said in a statement.
The Indian Air Force has two types of small and medium aircraft, the air scrapler, which has a range of 200 km, and the air tanker, which is a medium-size aircraft.
The air scrapper has been tested in the Indian Air Forces and is being considered for purchase by the Indian armed forces, the defence ministry added.
The government has asked industry and government agencies to submit proposals for the aircraft, which will be launched in the coming three months.
