HAL is in touch with Private Sector companies to form a new consortium to manufacture IMRH

Hindustan Aeronautics has been engaging in discussions with several private sector companies to form a new consortium to contribute to the 13-ton Indian Multi-Role Helicopter (IMRH) by assuming responsibility for production, sales, maintenance, repair and future upgrades while HAL will maintain a minority stake.

There is a potential demand for 400 units and officials have said that a formal announcement regarding the new consortium is expected by the end of 2024 and the production by the new consortium will start in 2028.

The Indian Multi Role Helicopter (IMRH) is a medium-lift helicopter currently under development by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for Indian Armed forces for air assault, air-attack, anti-submarine, anti-surface, military transport and VIP transport roles. IMRH is aimed to replace all the current Mil Mi-17 and Mil Mi-8 helicopters across the Indian armed forces.

The planned rotorcraft is expected to have a maximum takeoff weight of 13 tonnes with a five bladed main rotor and 4 bladed rotor on tail. The navalised version further will have longer range and higher payload capacity. HAL estimates requirement of over 314 rotocraft of same class across Indian Armed Forces replace existing Mil Mi-17 helicopters in service in India.
