The Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) is developing customised HELINA (Helicopter based NAG), a third generation fire and forget class anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) to be used from ALH-Rudra and Prachand-LCH that is further optimized for High Altitude operations and user trials of which is to commence soon.
HELINA already has cleared all user trials and last year it was tested at high-altitude ranges as part of user validation trials. The flight trials were conducted from an Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) and the missile was fired successfully engaging a simulated tank target.
The missile is guided by an Imaging Infra-Red (IIR) Seeker operating in the Lock on Before Launch mode. It is one of the most advanced anti-tank weapons in the world.
