Prime Minister Narendra Modi opened Aero India 2023. When it started, it was Asia’s biggest air show. During the big opening ceremony of the huge air show, Chief Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhari of the Indian Air Force led a flypast by the Gurukul formation.
During the show, a Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) called Prachand that was made in India did tricks in the air. It’s important to note that the aircraft was made in India and is part of the Indian Air Force fleet. It was officially put into service in 2022.
Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. (HAL) designed, built, and tested the multi-role attack helicopter for more than a decade. It has been changed to meet the needs of the Indian armed forces so that it can operate in both desert and high-altitude areas.
