HAL should give up here and IN should give up on NUH program.That's a good thing. Anyway, it looks like the IN will simply push forward with the NMRH tender. So HAL can straightaway work on a next gen helicopter for the navy instead.
There was never a combined program. It was two different airframe design with different weight.Whatchu talking about? There was a push to combine both requirements, especially from the navy.
