HAL IMRH - a multi-purpose transport helicopter of the Indian production, developed with 2014, the company «Hindustan Aeronautics Limited».

Designing an aircraft model HAL IMRH Indian aircraft manufacturers began in the year 2014, in this case, the aircraft was supposed to be used in both the civilian and military aircraft, helicopters replacing Russian and Chinese production. According to the beginning of the year 2016, the design of the aircraft has officially completed, and in the near term based on the created project will create itself design of the aircraft, which is expected to be able to make its first flight in 2018 year.

The HAL IMRH helicopter belongs to medium-capacity cargo-passenger aircraft - the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft is 10 thousand kilograms, however, in addition to the transportation of bulky goods, the helicopter is also intended to be used to transport people. Moreover, this applies to the civil aviation sphere, and to the military - according to preliminary data, work is underway to create a civilian version, however, by 2020 it is planned to start producing military variants of these aircraft, which are supposed to be. Foreign partners of India may also be interested.

Experts expect that the test tests of helicopter HAL IMRH, scheduled for the year 2018, will be very successful - in any case, this fact indicates the computer simulation.

Despite that fact. What helicopter HAL IMRH has sufficiently large dimensions, the Indian aircraft manufacturers claim that the aircraft will be very maneuverable, allowing it to perform various tasks related to the transport of people, the task of shipping, search and rescue operations, etc.

Depending on the layout of the cabin on board the aircraft model HAL IMRH can accommodate up to 20 people, including two crew members, which is a very acceptable figure. In addition, the helicopter will be able to perform the task of transporting cargo on its board total mass equal to 5,5 tons, which allows you to replace less efficient in this respect helicopters. In the military sphere, the applicability of the helicopter HAL IMRH virtually indistinguishable from the civil aviation - is that the aircraft will be used for the same purposes.

The helicopter HAL IMRH be equipped with a gas turbine power plant, consisting of two engines, the brand and whose performance is currently not yet been announced. Estimated cruising speed flight helicopter HAL IMRH should make 220 km \ h., While the maximum distance that the aircraft will be able to overcome without committing additional landings limited distance in 580 kilometers, which is quite acceptable.
