India’s state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has confirmed receiving a Request for Proposal (RFP) from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for the procurement of 156 Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) Prachand attack helicopters.

This significant development comes after the Indian Army raised its first attack squadron equipped with LCHs in Bangalore on June 1, 2022. The plan is to establish a total of seven squadrons, each with ten helicopters. The Indian Air Force (IAF) also formally inducted the Prachand into its fleet at the 143 Helicopter Unit at Jodhpur Air Force Station on October 3, 2022.

HAL has already delivered 15 Limited Series Production (LSP) LCH Prachand helicopters to the armed forces for Long Term User Trials (LTUT). These trials have been instrumental in evaluating the helicopter’s performance in real-world scenarios.

Based on earlier reports, the final deal for the 156 LCH Prachand attack helicopters with HAL is expected to be concluded by late 2024. This acquisition will significantly bolster India’s offensive helicopter capabilities, particularly in high-altitude regions.
