Indian Air Force has officially adopted light combat helicopters that were locally developed. The strength of the Indian Air Force has significantly strengthened with the introduction of these metalworking aircraft that can fire a range of missiles and other weapons. These helicopters were introduced to the Indian market at an event held at the Air Force Station in Jodhpur, Rajasthan.
The four helicopters were introduced during a ceremony that was attended by senior military officers as well as Defence Minister Rajnath Singh and Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari. The name of the helicopter will be Prachand, which means ferocious.
The LCH, as described by its creators, is the only attack helicopter in the world that can land and take off at a height of 5,000 metres while carrying a sizable cargo of fuel and armaments, meeting the specifications established by the Indian Armed Forces.
