Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, seeking to boost the tactical capabilities of the Indian armed forces, has awarded Thales a contract to supply 135 2.75-inch (70-mm) rocket launchers. Thales’s fully certified, field-proven, competitive rocket launchers are suitable for use on both light and combat helicopters. As a key differentiator for state-of-the-art helicopters and combat aircraft, they provide an excellent fit with the requirements of the Indian armed forces.
