First Sight At Bangalore, The Smashing LCH

Scoped the Light Combat Helicopter going through the motions as I stepped out of an IAF An-32 this afternoon at Bangalore's HAL airport. The chopper was looking good, the pilots pushing it quite a bit. Will be going to Yelahanka tomorrow to check out preparations. Stay tuned for everything.

Putting her through her paces with her landing gear down?
Either way, I'm hoping that the LCH puts on a performance brilliant enough to put the Sarang to shame.

where lch stands in comparison to apache blk3 or mi-28 or other leading attack helo s of the world?

There is only 1 prototype of LCH, so
we can't have a weaponized and un-weaponized version.

See carefully.

It is being surmised that it is one of the best in the world.

Aree yaar!
These sights make me wish that I could just drop work and rush to Bangalore.
Please do post hi-def vids for those of us who cannot make it to Bangalore.
