    They've been talking about this for years now. Looks like development won't actually start for another few years. Meanwhile IAF is being fleeced for buying outdated Mi-17V5s that lack modern safety features like digital FBW and autopilot.

    I think this would be a good opportunity for the IAF to diversify its domestic suppliers and give the private aerospace industry some growth opportunities. Cancel the M1-17s, let Tata partner up with a foreingn supplier to build something like the AW101 here and split the order with this and HAL's new medium-lift helo.

    Yes, I know, wishful thinking.

    It will be something like this :

    Airfram design consultant – Eurocopter

    Engine consultant – French or GE

    Avionics Consultant – Israel

    Additional Avionics consultant – BEL

    Operational consultant – Ministry of Defence

    Final consultant – the people of India and of course LiveFist readers 🙂

    Before bashing me , guys think – if the LCA, ALH and other programs are anything to go by !

    This will be like the saras program. go on for 30 years and still wont fly. in the end noone will care because whoever worked on it would retire and the project will be closed.
