Re: LCH and other Helicopters Discussion Thread

Gurus,
What are the advantages/disadvantages of a skid vs rolling landing gear in an attack helicopter. I notice the super cobra uses skid, however tyres seem to be the popular choice all over. Are skids not 'crash-worthy'?

(Also a BR expert needs to edit the LCH page on Wikipedia.)

Re: Miscellaneous Pictures - Indian Military

I checked the source picture, zoomed in, it is the Balidan badge,actually looks like a 'patch' sewn into the shirt. Another thing, if this the only badge/patch he is wearing, it makes sense to wear it on the left side.
