Three helicopters flew into the Naval Air Station, INS Dega, to signal their induction as '322 Dega Flight'.

The ALH MK III helicopter is equipped with an array of systems, making it an all-weather, multi-role helicopter of the Indian Navy. The first helicopter was commissioned in the Indian Navy in April this year.
