LCA-Naval completes successful supersonic flight

Without much fanfare and circus, LCA-N has just completed its maiden supersonic sortie.
It was so quietly done that most people missed the news and only now some information is appearing.

It flew at Mach1.1 with another Tejas from IAF chasing it, this is a great achievement for the STOBAR version of LCA-N because after 2012 it was going through a redesign of its landing gear.
