HAL Cancels 10-12 ton Chopper Co-development Bid, to Re-tender in August
Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) has scrapped an active tender for the co-development of a 10-12 ton class medium lift helicopter for which Eurocopter and Mil were shortlisted as potential technology and investment partners. HAL has communicated to the two short-listed companies that the tender had to be scrapped because qualitiative requirements of the armed forces have substantially changed. A fresh tender is scheduled to be out in September.
