The ladies album
Best album hands down! MiG girls are the best.

Another interesting point from the pictures (which are amazing btw) is the chiselled tail of the LCH, which look a bit like comache !!
One of the tactics employed by combat helos is to hide behind a hill with just the nose with the sensors just above the hill. This way they can track/target and fire guided missiles at the enemy targets while remaining hidden and protected by the hill.

If the IAF/IA want the LCH to be able to discern targets at 5km - 7km (as DRDO is claiming for the Nag), they are going to need larger apertures for the TV and IR CCDs. That FLIR ball might just be a place holder for now. engaging moving and stationary targets.
