India’s Prachand Light combat Helicopter as part of its evolving needs for futuristic weapons systems will be getting a tube-launched, collapsible wing, electric propulsion architecture loitering weapon that comes with multi-purpose warhead to expand Prachand’s warfighting capability and to hit hardened targets at a greater distance.
idrw.org has been told that work on long-range precision loitering munition that can hit targets beyond 35km with a 20-30kg warhead is under the initial stages of research and such precision loitering munition will be included as part of the near future upgrade weapons package of the Prachand.
Plans are to also develop a special beehive launcher for Air-launched loitering munition to be used on the attack helicopter that is easy to launch and also easy to reload after completion of the previous missions.
