You are wrong here too.Yes, I was wrong... That thing was cleared up in the following posts (also WFT MODI GOVT?!..). No need to reinvent that wheel again.
Due to its modular approach, Ka-226 is more versatile then LUH. The same airframe could be used as an Ambulance, Cargo and Carrier. Same could not be hold true in case of LUH. For example, if you use LUH as an Air Ambulance, you have to refit it again as a carrier. Ka-226 gives you the flexibility here.
Moreover as per one past discussion, we have an immediate need of around 2k Helos in LUH category. Could you put all the eggs on HAL basket for that?
LUH and Ka-226 could be supplementary to each other here.
