    Why is the weaponised ALH “magnificient” Shiv? I never understood what the big deal was. It’s just a gunship at this point. Can it fire a ‘Nag’ yet? That’s what I’d consider an achievement.

    boeing left the indian helicopter competion for its apache helicopter cuz our contract was just of $ 500 million,but

    boeing sold 24 apache helicopter to s.korea for $811 million and that was 60% less than the actual factory price and in this way each helicopter cost 33million

    now just think what will b the actual price after adding that 60%

    this was tha main reason that our tender is worth 500million for 22 combat helicopters and boeing knows that it can’t sell apaches at this low price thats y they left the competion

    Shiv ask HAL to leave the design with some foreign firm then ALH will come out in better shape. May consider some firms in Jalandhar–yep. Can u believe this one is manually handled while manufacturing. Even maruti company also cannot imagine that kind of handling

    Breathes there a man with a soul so dead,

    Who never to himself hath said,

    A blue weaponised Dhruv, that’s my dream,

    If I don’t have one, I shall scream?

    (with due apologies to Walter Whatshisname)

    @annon…
    By the way from where SU-25 came in picture while we are talking about Attack helos…
    You can't compare the role of a Bomber & Attack helos.

    Shiv, nice. Note that this bird appears to be carrying mockups of missiles, EO ball. The Gun appears real on the other hand. The pylons for the missiles are very crude tubular productions that appear to be proof of concept jobs. See detailed pics on Broadswords blog.

    Shiv,

    Can the WSI-Dhruv carry troops?

    I have a hunch that the WSI-Dhruv are meant for the SF and not as general purpose gunships.

    it looks like shit…dosent look menacing enough..
    looks like a KSRTC bus with bamboo logs attached to it.

    look at Apache..design is shows an attitude…thats what happens when u have 60 yr old engineerings designing or weapons..

    so get real..not everything is admirable…grow some balls to criticise..
