    All the great reason for a new platform. I really would want this to be a joint production with French or US(last option).

    It's too late for that, the IN's NMRH and NLUH needs will be taken care of via a foreign product(s) to be made in India, there is nothing the DRDO/HAL can do about that.

    And bro, the IMRH, like the LUH/LCH/ALH will be a HAL product, there is little DRDO involvement.

    IMRH is backed by Navy and Army Claims HAL

    After coming under fire for initiating Upgraded Combat Hawk Project without backing from Indian Air force, which firmly rejected BAE-HAL proposal to buy the Advance version of Trainer jet. HAL has confirmed that it will be displaying a full-scale mockup of Indian Multi-Role Helicopter (IMRH) at Aero India 2017. HAL also confirmed that IMRH both Indian Army and Indian Navy have shown interest in the big-lift next-generation chopper and both have agreed to be on board the project and IMRH is not an in-house HAL project . HAL also said that IMRH is currently is at its initial stage, and we have taken it up ourselves. The army and the navy have shown interest in choppers of this type and we hope our helicopter will meet their expectations,” a senior HAL official said.Interestingly Indian Air force who is the largest fleet operator of Mi-8 and the Mi-17 Medium class helicopter which HAL hopes IMRH will replace is clearly sitting on the fence and might join in, only when Project achieves some crucial milestone feels Defence Analyst Ranesh Rajan.

    Well.....
    The HAL was initially supposed to take up joint development with Eurocopter or the Russians....But that didn't go so well....
    So after that...

    AFAIK the IMRH has been in development since 2009-2011 time (somewhere in that ballpark)....
    Now some 5-6 Years later the project seems to be in the initial stages....

    We will finally see the mock-up in the 2017AeroIndia Expo...And hopefully some more details.....

    Members are there any official statements from the Navy/AF/IA regarding intrest in the project...!?


    I hope this chopper is mass production ready and certified by 2030 so mass production can start from 2030-2035 and further.....



    For this role we now rely on Mi-8M/17 choppers....They will definitely need a replacement....




    And also...The Indian Navy will need some cool marine choppers...Like the H225M....

    Hopefully we can evolve this project into a naval version further.....2030 and later......Then we will be filling a critical indegenous void in naval rotary aviation....

    South Korea paid 1.2 Billion USD to get their own version of H225M, with full IPR rights , and now they are marketing that product in the whole world.

    LUH,LCH were the priority. Now since both are entering production or in flight testing the design team is now focusing on this project.
    First you need user commitment and order forecast to get foreign collaboration which they did not get from IAF. Now they are have got support from IN and IA.

    We don't need foreign collaboration for such a project. An enlarged Dhruv would do. Why spend that kind of money ? Look at the fly away cost, $18 million!
