    Most of the Helis in the video don't have heat suppressors.......I thought those things were standard on the V5's although they have the metal plate to shield pilots from direct fire :confused:

    Putting those shield also cause aerodynamic drag coz loss of speed so put of when not needed..

    Plates are put to prevent 7.62x51mm rounds or even bigger rounds..

    A powerful machine and timely too.

    However, the NDTV commentator seems to overdo the hyperbole.

    The Kargil context was a bit thick!

    Such misrepresentation degrades the gravity of the commentary.
