Joint User Trials for Helina (Army Version) and Dhruvastra (Air Force Version) Missile Systems designed and developed by DRDO were carried out from Advanced Light Helicopter  platform in desert ranges. Five missions were carried out for evaluating the missile capabilities in minimum and maximum range. The missiles were fired in hover and max forward flight against realistic static and moving targets. Some missions were carried out with warheads against derelict tanks. A mission was carried out against a moving target from a forward flying helicopter.

HELINA is a third-generation, lock-on before launch fire and forgets Anti-Tank Guided Missile that can engage targets in both indirect hit mode as well as top attack mode. The system has all weather day and night capability and can defeat battle tanks with conventional armour as well as with explosive reactive armour. Indigenously developed by the Defence Research and Development Organisation, it is one of the most advanced anti-tank weapons in the world. Now the missile systems are ready for induction. Defence minister Rajnath Singh congratulated DRDO, Indian Army and Indian Air Force for this achievement.
