Hindustan Aeronautics Limited’s (HAL) indigenously developed Light Combat Helicopter (LCH), also known as Prachand, is poised for a crucial milestone later this year. The helicopter will undergo integration and testing with the Helina Anti-Tank Guided Missile (ATGM), a key weapon system for the platform.

Helina, the helicopter-launched version of the Nag missile, has already been successfully test-fired from the ALH-Rudra attack helicopter. This integration process is expected to be seamless due to the significant system overlap between the LCH and Rudra.

Helina boasts advanced capabilities, making it a potent weapon for the LCH. Helina with a range of 7 kilometres, Helina allows for engagement from a safe distance, enhancing pilot survivability. Helina also features a Lock-on-After-Launch (LOAL) feature that offers greater flexibility. The helicopter can fire the missile in the general vicinity of the target and then use the missile’s seeker to lock on after identification.

The successful integration of Helina will significantly enhance the Prachand’s combat capabilities, making it a more potent weapon system for the Indian Armed Forces.
