Notes:

On static display on the 89th Air Force Day at Hindon AFS. Safe to say that the “Jag” is still a favorite sight for many, and the IAF is now the only operator in the world. Inducted in July 1979, the “Shamsher” initially equipped No. 14 Sqn. “Bulls” as a Deep Penetration Strike Aircraft (DPSA). It was used during IPKF ops in 1987 and Kargil in 1999. This DARIN III variant has been considerably upgraded with an Open System Architecture Mission Computer, EFIS, smart MFDs, radar, RWRs and other avionics.
