India : Weapons trials for light combat Helicopters.

The weapon trials for LCH are planned in July-August 2016. The demonstration of Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) in 70 mm rockets firing conducted during IAFs Iron Fist event held in March, 2016 at Jaisalmer was successful. The flight trials were successful with respect to system integration, structural integrity, noise and vibration, functionality of system and safe separation of rockets.

The Development flights carried out earlier at Bangalore, Chennai (sea level), Leh (cold weather), Jodhpur (hot weather) and Leh in Summer (hot temperature & high altitude) as well as confirmatory firing trials of rockets integrated on LCH during IAFs Iron Fist event in March, 2016 have given adequate confidence for carrying out certification firing trials.

The certification firing trials with integration of mission sensors such as electro optical system, helmet pointing system and weapon systems air to air missiles, turret gun and rockets are planned during July-August 2016.
