First Photos Of India's Helina ATGM Firing Trials On HAL Rudra

These first photos of the indigenous Helina ATGM being fired from a Dhruv-WSI were posted by my friend Anantha Krishnan M on Tarmak007 and used here with courtesy. Nice work, Ananth!

Wow! this one needs to be brought in service asap and also integrated with Dhruv WSI. It will then give better competition to the 197 helicopter program. Next step could be upgrade this to Brimstone like specs and mount on drones

@shiv aroor, @tarmak007

the pics look awesome, the articles say Rudra to get IOC in few months, thats ok and hope FOC in next 2 years

But what about Helina missile, do you expect it to be in service anytime soon

thanks

Good work Shiv Sir. I like the comradeship you have shown with Tarmak and vaguely remember that Tarmak blog was born after getting inspired by yours! Both blogs are great. This is celebration of good journalism and we are the winners. All the best Shiv Sir, Tarmak. What news on LCA?

Good work by ADA and HAL ..
Further need to integrate a SAR capable Radar or MMW Radar mounted (combined with Weapons Locating Radar) on Nose or Mast(Like Apache).
That will make this animal more capable one, apart from will provide a early warning in the war-zone.
