Army has 50 rudra with 10 more on order . But the atgm helina is equipped or not idk.India should really be ordering LCH's & Rudra's in droves. There's a huge need for armed helos & CAS assets in general, and Apaches aren't going to fulfill that need in terms of sheer numbers.
Also, the ALH (Dhruv) and LUH could be used for a lot of other tenders/needs across the three services too. Large orders need to be placed for indigenous helicopters - that's one area that can be a massive Aatmanirbhar success story (along with artillery guns).
