Advanced Light Helicopters Mk-III: Key Points

  • The commissioning of 840 sqn (CG), in accordance with the government’s vision of Aatmanirbhar Bharat, is representative of the step towards self-reliance in the field of helicopter manufacture, according to the Ministry of Defence.
  • Hindustan Aeronautics Limited developed the ALH Mk-III helicopters in-house (HAL).
  • The advanced radar and electro-optical sensors, Shakti engines, full glass cockpit, high-intensity searchlight, cutting-edge communications systems, automatic identification system, as well as the research and rescue homer are just a few examples of the cutting-edge technology found in the Advanced Light Helicopters produced domestically by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.
  • With the help of this function, the helicopter may operate from ships during the day and at night, conducting maritime surveillance and long-range search and rescue missions.
  • In order to make the transfer of seriously ill patients easier, the aircraft may also transform from an offensive platform with a powerful machine gun to a benign one carrying an intensive care unit.

About Advanced Light Helicopters Mk-III

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has developed the Advanced Light Helicopter, a twin engine utility aircraft, domestically. The helicopter made its first flight in 1992, but due to a number of factors—including the Indian Army’s request for design modifications, financial constraints, and sanctions imposed on India after the 1998 Pokhran-II nuclear tests—its development took longer than expected.
