    As long as these delays are helping to root out corruption, I'm all for it. These are growing pains.

    On the other hand, I am convinced that these delays are because someone is NOT getting paid.

    @ Satish Chandra

    I come to "Livefist" to get the latest defence updates. But you sir, just ruin my experience with all your idiotic and baseless talks. The blogger himself gave you a mild (?!) warning. Seems like it didn't have any effect on you.

    Well, I could just ignore you. But, I can't tolerate such non sensical bull shit you come up with every now and then.

    If you by any chance have something called self respect and self esteem, just enjoy the blog and don't make a clown out of yourself with your miserable conspiracies.

    Satish is my new hero ! This santa looking ass deserves our respect or maybe our pity.

    Is the delay political ? How can there be corruption in a 2 horse race ? The ideal would be winner gets order and runner up needs to tie up with HAL to speed up their LUH.

    Damn it Shiv,

    Are you going to do something to this bastard troll Satish Chandra or not?

    Cut his crap and save your readers, PLZ.

    Hi All:
    Satish Chandra's spam will be shortly dealt with. Let's continue to ignore him till then 🙂

    LOH/LUH/RSH seems like three versions of the same light helicopter which would replace Cheetah helos.

    If India opts from 197 helos from a foreign vendor, then what will justify the HAL project on lilght helicopters? Wouldn't AIR FORCE come up with Pilatus type argument that its better to have one type of helos for logistic simplicity?

    As far as HAL is concerned, t has reportedly adhered to all deadlines on LUH/LOH. The current government should give this issue a comrehensive look and then decide the best course.

    Remember,even if HAL is going slow, there is one option of involving private companies like TATA SED which is already making Sikorsky helicopters. Then, not only India can have light helos but can export as well.

    Similar private-public even international partnership could be initiated in Medium Lift Multi-role helos which are sorely needed in Navy and other branches.

    BTW SHIV, Thanks for taking care of that troll, who shouldn't be named.

    Why cant the HAL Dhruv suffice for these LUH requirements?

  9. 9


    India should import 197 Harbin Z-9 from China.

  10. 10


    I don't understand why they are still faffing about trying to compartmentalize the various aircraft and helicopter fleets. We already produce a perfectly good utility helicopter in the Dhruv, but instead of bulk buying that and helping the local industry they continue to haggle over these useless wasps just because they have some outdated notions of Light Helicopter in their heads. The Chetak and Cheetah are from another era..why must they insist on duplicating that capability when an opportunity to UPGRADE exists!?

  11. 11


    LUH/RSH/LOH is necessary because all functions cant be done by ALH Dhruv.

    You need a helo in 3 ton category as much as a 5/6 ton and 10-12 ton ones. Dhruv is risky for Siachen.
