    The Bell was always known to be the better chopper. But what use is a chopper that won’t fly in a real war?

    And I won’t count out Bell, they seem to be closely involved with a lot of projects here.

    All this Shiv baiting is getting a bit boring. If you have a valid point, do raise it, if not please don’t waste your time.

    Its fairly simple..isnt it? Its clear that both helos had issues even though they are non-russian/non-DRDO. And yet we are inducting them?

    God almighty we are inducting helos with known “issues” !! Imagine what a huge ruckus it would have been if any DRDO system was found to have issues during the trials!! It would have been the end of the world and huge cries over IA/IAF being forced to accept it.. where as when the issues are with phoren maal — we bypass and accept.

    Every system has issues – it is upto IA/IAF to work “together” with DRDO and solve them for their own longterm good. By the same token as inducting Fennec or Bell with issues – why cant they induct Akash and then gradually sort out the issues.
