The sec­ond pro­to­type of the LCH land­ed at Tam­baram today along with a Mi‑8 chase heli­copter from the Yela­hanka air force station. 

The tri­als which could stretch to ten days will include gener­ic per­for­mance and han­dling at sea-lev­el. Ban­ga­lore is at 3,000 feet above sea lev­el and thus sea-lev­el tri­als can­not take place here, said a senior defence sci­en­tist. Cal­i­bra­tion of the LCH’s air speed mea­sure­ment sys­tem and mea­sure­ment of forces in terms of stress on var­i­ous com­po­nents of the plat­form will be test­ed through­ly in the lat­est trials. 

The third pro­to­type of the LCH, is under way and is expect­ed to be much dif­fer­ent than LCH‑1 and LCH‑2. The third pro­to­type is said to be sig­nif­i­cant­ly lighter than it’s pre­de­ces­sors since Inida’s LCH is way heav­ier when com­pared to the world’s top attack helicopters.
