Hindustan Aeronautics Limited signed its second contract for the supply of Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) choppers to the Indian MoD this year taking its order book from the military versions of the choppers to 73.

The recent contract is for 40 ALH choppers to the Indian Army and one to the Indian Navy.  

“The latest order reflects the trust on HAL’s capabilities and gives an impetus to make-in-India campaign. It reposes faith of Indian Defence forces in indigenous ALH which has been serving them with distinction for a long time”, said Mr. T. Suvarna Raju, Chairman and Managing Director, HAL.

The contracts for supply of 41 ALHs amounting around Rs 6100 crores will be executed in a period of 60 months. The contract was signed between MoD and HAL in New Delhi recently. Officials from MoD, Indian Army, Indian Navy and HAL were present during the event.

In March this year HAL had signed a contract for supply of 32 ALH to boost the maritime security capabilities of the Indian Navy (IN) and Indian Coast Guard (ICG).
