Naval LCA set for carrier compatibility tests

The naval variant of India's Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) is gearing up for carrier compatibility tests at the shore-based INS Hansa in Goa.
The first prototype completed its maiden flight on April 27, 2012.
LCA-Navy is the second Ski Take-Off But Arrested Recovery (STOBAR ) carrier-borne aircraft in the world, after the Russian deck-based aircraft. However, it'll be the only carrier-borne fighter aircraft in the light category.
