HAL Dhruv Weapons system integration

  HAL started Weapons system integration (WSI) project of DHRUV and is facing some delays however the work is going on in full swing.

hopes to use the ALH Dhruv platform to develop two variants, one for
Navy and another for Air-force and Army. Currently prototype’s of both
variants are flying, HAL is using old Navy Dhruv ASW helicopter (IN701)
which was rejected by navy to develop the Naval variant.

Radar and Sonar tests. Wide array of sensor and weapons are being
integrated into the helicopter to make it more lethal.
