Rajnath flies sortie in LCH Prachand

Jodhpur, Oct 3 (PTI) Defence Minister Rajnath Singh on Monday flew a sortie in a Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) after a fleet of the highly agile choppers was inducted into the Indian Air Force.

After the sortie, Singh said at the Jodhpur Air Force station that the LCH 'Prachand' is capable of sending out a message to India's adversaries and that the all-terrain lethal platform also has export potential.

"The LCH is capable of dodging the enemy, carrying a variety of ammunition, and delivering it to the site quickly. The LCH perfectly meets the needs of our armed forces in various terrains," he said.
