Japan wants to buy India's LCH that broke world records

Defencenews reports:

India's LCH broke records, when it flew at one of the worlds highest landing bases located in Siachen with a decent weapons payload. The attack helicopter scaled an altitude of 4.8 kms from sea level to one of th most remote, inhospitable environment known to human beings. The LCH was specifically developed in response to the lack of an attack helicopter that is capable of performing high altitude combat operations during the 1999 Kargil war. The LCH has finished all weather trials and has performed exceptionally well. It is the only helicopter in the world that can operate at an altitude at 10 to 20,000 feet with a significant amount of weapons payload and is the first attack helicopter in the world to land at Siachen. The chopper has completed all performance trials and is now heading towards Final Operational Clearance (FOC). Apart from the Indian Armed Forces, some other countries including Japan have shown keen interest in buying the LCH given its success in high altitude combat and performance.
