As I said , both HELINA and LAHAT are intended for LCH.For IOC it would be LAHAT. HELINA has been tested with Rudra, but no tests has yet been carried out on LCH.
I was at the DRDO defense expo at Chennai last month...the imarat guy said that nag has completed development trials..currently awaiting orders.. reworked seeker hits the target at the range of 3.2 Kms during 12 noon to 1pm ...range during other parts of the day in Rajasthan desert is same as the stated range of 4kms.Nope, it is almost ready. We have test fired Nag recently and it worked fine. Its range however decreased by 25% in 50 degrees Celsius heat. In normal places, it works well. It will take a year or two for induction. But the LCH will also take 2-3 years to be produced in large numbers and to be equipped with various systems
They never release any news about helina tests. Even the Rustom-1 test was not released but luckily someone took a photoHelina Missile test is being readied with a new electromechanical actuators and higher resolution IIR seeker, I just don't know when it will be tested.

Mixing up of different platforms below squadron level is best avoided to simplify logistics and maintenance issues. However, I believe that IA would definitely plan to use Apache-LCH in a Su-30MKI-MiG-21Bison kind of combo. Most likely, a brigade of army aviation will have one squadron of Apache and 2 of LCH. Not sure how much armour would be backed by a single Army aviation brigade.Is there a plan to have one or two apache with longbow radar in a squadron of IA LCH?
What is more suitable for MEDEVAC? Dhruv or LUH?
