Bengaluru, Feb 22 (IANS) State-run defence behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) on Friday delivered three Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH Dhruv Mk-3) to the Indian Army as part of its contract for making 22 of these.
"We have handed over the documents of the first three of the 22 ALH MK-3 to the Indian Army," HAL said at the Aero India air show.
HAL Chairman and Managing Director R. Madhavan was present when its helicopter division Chief Executive G.V.S. Bhaskar handed over the documents to Lt. Gen. Kanwal Kumar, Director General of Army Aviation Corps.
The city-based aerospace major in August 2017 signed a Rs 6,100-crore contract to supply 40 ALHs to the Indian Army, including 22 ALH Mk-3 and 18 weaponised ALH Mk-4 Rudra, and one ALH to the Indian Navy.
"Of the 22 helicopters, 19 have been produced and will be delivered in due course," the company said.
The ALH Dhruv Mk-3 is a multirole new generation copter designed and developed by HAL.
