Notes:

HAL's test-pilots proudly displaying the WSI (Weapons Systems Integrated) Dhruv bolted with the more powerful 'Shakti' engine jointly developed by Turbomeca (France) and HAL. On the bottom centre you can see the THL 20mm gun turret housing the M621 low-recoil cannon, the white Pod in the nose centre houses the FLIR (forward-looking infrared), CCD camera & a target acquisition system with thermal sight and laser rangefinder. [Aero India 2009] (Shot with my broken 55-250mm lens > MF to infinity > AF & IS switched-off)

Vishal, this is amazing!! The chowpa, the angle, everything is meant to be here. I suppose its the first shot of the Attack Version of Dhruv. My PC Nominee.

VJ, I gotta give it a PC nomination too. Its a classic shot. Hopefully I can get some nice shots of some FA-22 Raptors next weekend and the Airshow here in Phoenix.
