    Typical MSM eye catching headline ! Disses a desi product in a phrase. Do you know the cause of these 3 Crashes 2 of which were in Equador and 1 in manasbal in night flying conditions in a mountainous area ! for all we know all 3 might be due to 3 different causes and yet not related to either manufacturing or design of dhruv

    Dhruv's are really trashy…both in terms of looks and performance…I don't know when our forces will stop buying trashy equipment resulting the death of our brave soldiers, just to satisfy the ego of those lazy baboons at HAL!

    I do not think HAL has capability cauz they always assembled components to make LCA or Dhrv ….. without real capability its all DRAMA

    IAS lobby never wishes that India develop defense industrial capability else their commission is gone ….

    It's pilots who loose their lives. Allow Dhruv to be used by politicians and vvip for transport. But they will not fly. Until someone from political clan dies nothing will change

    what could be the reasons for crash
    in all the accidents?
    1. Engine failure? ALH has twin engines..i think it can land in emergency if one engine fails
    2. Fire in Engine
    3. Main gear box failure
    4. rotor blades shearing/breaking
    5. Rear rotor failure
    6. structural breakup
    7.contaminants in fuel
    8. pilot error in reading the dial gauges especially digital MFD dispaly readings,pilots familiarity with the controls and ALH
    9. BAd weather etc…
    10. quality control

    Ecuador 10000 feet above sea level and JK also high in mountains. The engine performance in elevated terrain suffers, in addition to being an under powered machine. Patriotism doesn't mean that we ignore a problem and blame it on everything but he machine. Being patriotic means that we must solve problems in peace time so the we can win wars !!!!

    Whatever is the issue HAL should fix the problem. In this cases it is not the pilot error it is technical error . They need to fix not Chalta hai yaar attitude

    stealth if not everything in combat !!

    if VTOL is useless then why India bought Sea Harrier ?

    in fact most of top naval leaders belongs to the group, precisely of the reason …….

    its a tactical game where ease of maintenance not everything ….. but only soldiers can understand it,

    not TV/ UPS mechanics !!
