    If i an not wrong, recently it was reported that "after failing to secure a DP HAL has decided to go alone for IMRH". What happened now, who are the probables, is HAL issuing new proposal?

    Besides, how long HAL is willing to wait? We see Navy importing helicopters in same class while IAF is ordering addition Mi-17Vs. Further delays is surely pushing situation similar to that exists in LUH program where even after working and developing a equally capable or better product HAL will have only half the share.

    The Indian Navy must order about 20-30 of these attack helos that will operate from its new LHD's. These attack helis will be of great help in operations similar to seen in Libya. After the strike aircraft from INS Vikramaditya has taken the majority of SAM's. The next wave can be helis of about 5-6 LCH's along with about 10 armed versions of ALH's that can form the next wave of assault to capture beachhead for safe landing of troops and equipment on enemy shores.

    Been closely following LCH program. Its an good example of our unique needs and indigenous R&D for unique solution. This is the path we must move further ahead on. Some people want us to instantly switch to indigenous but that simply isnt possible. Helicopters are being indigenised in utility, light combat and medium attack class but heavy will still be from US/Russia. One has to walk before running and progress in helicopters, if you are an realist, has been impressive.

    Does anybody have any information as to the Electro-optical/ Infra Red Sensor pod on the LCH ? The pictures available to the public show a very primitive device compared to the some of the latest EO?IR sensors available from FLIR, L-3 or even Elbit.
