    HAL to unveil armed Rudra helicopter at Aero India 2013 | idrw.org

    Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) is planning to unveil an armed variant of its Rudra advanced light helicopter (ALH) at the forthcoming Aero India Exhibition, which is scheduled to be held in February 2013 in Bangalore, India.

    Fully designed and manufactured by HAL, the latest version features an array of new weapon systems, such as 20mm turreted gun, 70mm rocket pods and air-to-air combat missiles.
    Commenting on the helicopter, HAL chairman RK Tyagi was quoted by The Times of India as saying that the helicopter’s combat capability has been augmented through integration of electronic warfare suite and counter-measure devices, such as flares and chaffs dispensers.

    “Sighting systems, such as electro-optical pod and helmet-pointing systems, have been integrated to augment target aiming capabilities,” Tyagi added.

    Also known as ALH-WSI, the helicopter has already proven its performance and firing capabilities during extensive flight trials, and is currently awaiting initial operational clearance (IOC), which is expected to be awarded shortly.

    “Initial deliveries of Rudra to the army are planned in this fiscal year,” Tyagi said.

    Due to advanced self-defence and protection suite, the helicopter is expected to be used for several armed and unarmed missions, including heliborne assault, logistic support, reconnaissance, casualty evacuation, anti-tank warfare, close air support, and anti-submarine warfare and anti-surface vessel (ASV) operations.

    Powered by two Shakti engines, the Rudra is an armed variant of the Dhruv ALH and is designed to carry out both utility and attack missions in the battlefield.

    The multi-mission helicopter is equipped with forward-looking infrared (FLIR) and thermal imaging sights interface, integrated defensive aids suite (IDAS) with electronic warfare self-protection, anti-tank guided missiles and automatic flight control system to improve the army’s aerial firepower capabilities.

    BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL: Miss South American beauty pageant participants get floored by the macho looks of India's flagship flying machine -- the Advanced Light Helicopter Dhruv -- at an air base in Ecuador. While the HAL-built Dhruv is definitely having a great time in Ecuador, watch out Tarmak007 for some cool updates on Rudra and LCH ahead of Aero India.

    Union Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh said on Tuesday that India will make efforts to get Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’s (HAL) Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruv certified by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) US, in the near future.

    Speaking at the inauguration of the FAA-Asia Pacific Bilateral Partners’ Meet-2013 here, he said “in the last decade the domestic passenger traffic in India has grown by 160 per cent taking the country to the fourth place globally, after the US, China and Japan. Yet, India is still among the least penetrated markets, providing the civil aviation industry a great potential going forward.”
    The global passenger traffic was estimated to touch 800 million by 2014. About 45 per cent of this or 360 million would be in the Asia Pacific route. “…The main focus in the Asia Pacific region will be India and China,” Singh said. The country was focused on civil aviation and that its policies like allowing 49 per cent FDI in the sector, creating a more efficient authority to replace the Director-General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) upgradation of airports and so on were indicative of the same. “The move to get Dhruv certified is also in line with this strategy,” he said.

    Singh said a mechanism had to be evolved to benefit the bilateral countries involved in such agreements (with FAA, which India has signed recently) so as to boost trade of aeronautical parts.

    Chairman of HAL R K Tyagi said the Defence PSU haD made a beginning with the civil variant of Dhruv, moving from its core focus of military aviation. “We now propose to play a leading role in India’s national civil aircraft development programme as we have dedicated facilities at our transport division in Kanpur,” he said.

    The three-day meet is being organised by the DGCA with the main focus on aircraft certification. “This provides an opportunity for partner civil aviation authorities (CAAs) from 11 countries to share methods for strengthening bilateral airworthiness relationships through enhanced resource sharing, communications and procedural improvements,” a DGCA official said.

    Apart from the delegates from the US, the participating Asia-Pacific countries include Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, China, Chinese Taipei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia and India.

    That's cool for a aerobatic display team but definitely not for a professional military

    Crossposting from PDF, interesting videos of the Dhruv, most likely from a marketing tour in Thailand:
