Rudra should be deployed immediately on the border across the loc to check the infiltration.

Mr.Shiv Aroor i think the first 2 pics are those of ALH Rudra that is derived from ALH Dhruv while the last two are of the LCH Black Tiger . Please correct me if i am wrong , if the weaponised Dhruv and Light Combat Helicopter are essentially two different designs .

This is such a heartening sight. With local manufacture, we can have hundreds of Rudras and LCHs, offering battlefield commanders greater flexibility in terms of areas of deployment, as well as more options in terms of concentration of firepower.

The greatest threat that these machines will face is MANPADS. But then MANPADS usually have a 5-7km range. Im sure the users are working out tactics to effectively deploy these platforms while minimizing exposure to MANPADS threats.

I recently read an article claiming that Iran is building and selling MANPADS all around the middle east and to south asian terrorists .
