I don't think there is currently any helicopter mounted ARM anywhere in the world.
US did developed and build around 700 units of AGM-122 Sidearm between 1986 and 1990, but its unclear whether that thing is still in service or not.
DRDO also doesn't seem to have a project for this........at least none that we know of.

Another picture of the interior of an IA Carrier Command Post Tracked based on BMP-2 IFV developed by DRDO and operates with a crew of two. It is linked to Army ACCCS system consisting of Shakti Tactical Computers and STARS-5 Radios to designate targets , relay info and solution plotting.


Why are the inbuilt screens of this Command Post vehicle switched off and they seem to be relying on the equipment placed on the shelf for their job? Why is everything so ad-hoc with our forces despite having so much of these things made in India to Forces specification and then trialing all these things to death before finally inducting? One would expect that after such "rigorous" trials, the thing would be fully integrated and work seamlessly. Especially stuff that forms the backbone of our so-called network-centric force. WTF is wrong with us?
