    It is a good move only if Dhruv mk3 has armour plating like MI-17.......

    The operations generally done by the NSG do not warrant a attack helicopter. Helicopters are only used by the NSG for quick insertion and they have the Mi-17 for that. Feel free to correct me.

    Dhruv MK 3 is not an attack helicopter it is an upgraded version with night flying cabilities and upgraded engines.

    Yikes.. My bad. Apologies. I mistook the Mk-3 for the ALH WSI (which would be Mk-4). However, how effective would an ALH be for the Urban roles that the NSG is deployed in? But then, the ALH WSI would be a perfect for for the Pathankot type operations.
