    Bharatiya Nau Sena Dhruv

    The Indian Navy was planning to use the ALH variant of the Dhurv for Utility, ASW and SAR roles. The last two roles have been abandoned due to lack of a reliable rotor folding mechanism for small ship operation and only 8 ALH were accepted, the remainder being cancelled.
