Bharat Electronics has signed a Joint Development Agreement (JDA) with the Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM) for the development of an 80mm unguided rocket that is suitable for use on both light and combat helicopters. Indian-developed AL-Rudra and LCH Gunships use 70 mm rockets but Mi-35 Hind uses 80mm Rockets.
Unguided rockets are designed to destroy any ground targets and are used on almost all military helicopters and aircraft.
It is not clear if it will be an upgrade and replacement for all imported 70 mm rockets on Indian helicopters or if it will be limited to Russian platforms like Mi-35 and Mi-17s.
