HAL LCH (link to original) the homegrown attack helicopter's final configuration has now been frozen and HAL has confirmed that the TD-4 configuration has been selected as the final configuration.
Till now HAL was extensively testing the 4 prototypes of the homegrown chopper. The weapons integration is being done and til now HAL has successfully integrated LCH with several weapons like Mistral air to air missiles, 70 mm rockets and state of the art Electronic suit. According to HAL officials, LCH is currently being integrated with Anti Tank guided missiles or ATGM. Currently it is being integrated with various missiles and later it will be integrated with homegrown HELINA ATGM which is under development.
The LCH is armed with various weapons as shown in the image below(many being integrated with helicopter).
Till now HAl has tested the various prototypes of LCH for various conditions including hot and cold & high altitude conditions.
HAL LCH is specially designed for high altitude warfare and has the unprecedented capabilities to be able to operate at high altitudes. It is also the only attack helicopter in the world which has landed at Siachen with considerable payload. It holds the world record for flight ceiling.
HAL LCH limited series production has now started and the aim is to make about 5 helicopters this year. The rate of production is kept low currently.
Even when Indian Army Aviation Corps (IAAC) has presented a need for about 114 LCH and IAf for about 65 LCH, the initial production rate is low because no contract has been signed for the helicopter with armed forces till now, although the MOD & DAC has cleared the production of 15 LCH in November last year ( MOD CLEARS ACQUISITION WORTH 82000 crore INR RS ).
MY OPINION - I think in near future we might see fixed orders from IA and IAF for LCH. also other than the projected requirement of 114 from IAAC and 65 from IAF we might see a follow back order (mostly from IACC) as MOD has planned making attack helicopters part of every Army Aviation Corps so the order from IA may grow upto 150 to 200 LCH.
Apart from Indian Armed forces there are several nations which have shown interest in LCH like Japan etc so it has a tremendous potential for exports too.
