[India, which regards elephants as gods, has even made "flying elephants"]

It is well known that India worships cattle and elephants as gods. At an Indian "Republic Day" military parade in the 1970s, India came up with a "flying elephant". India covered the outside of the "Chetak" helicopter with an elephant "cape", and even in order to achieve realistic results, the Indian army also specially asked domestic designers to design a pair of matching ivory, a thick and long elephant trunk, and even four elephant legs hanging on the outside of the "Chetak" helicopter.

However, because the helicopter glass was covered with decorations, the pilot's vision was seriously obstructed, which seriously affected flight safety, coupled with the presence of ivory and other protrusions, the maximum flight speed of the helicopter dressed as an elephant was only 110 km / h, so the subsequent military parade in India did not carry out such a risky operation.

"Chetak" helicopter is a domestic helicopter developed by India on the basis of the French "Skylark 3" helicopter, after obtaining a production license agreement between the French Aerospace Manufacturing Company and Hindustan Aviation Co., Ltd., "Chetak" has produced more than 300 in India and exported to Namibia, Suriname and other countries, until 2010, the Indian Air Force gradually phased out the helicopter.
