India's air force will phase out Western-made fighter jets and rely more on its own Tejas light combat aircraft, according to Reuters news agency.
"Our intention is to go as much as possible within our own stable," Air
Marshal S. Krishnaswamy told reports at an air show in Singapore.
India is developing the Tejas model, as well as a light combat helicopter.
India, which has the world's fourth largest air force, buys most of its arms from Israel and Russia.
