Make in India seems to be the focus of this year’s Aero India. The 11th edition of Asia’s biggest aviation spectacle started at the Yelahanka airbase in Bengaluru .

A day after the IAF inducted the first indigenously developed all-weather airborne early warning and control (AEW&C) system on the inaugural day of the show, the Army on Wednesday tested the Light Combat Helicopter (LCH), a multirole combat chopper developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited that is likely to get initial operational clearance soon. Defence PSU Bharat Electronics Ltd also unveiled a remote-controlled weapon system for the Army’s Arjun tanks that will enable a soldier to fire the mounted machine gun at aerial targets from the safe interiors of a tank.
