Combining the fuselage of the Alouette II with the dynamic performance of the Alouette III, the full-size SA 315 Lama helicopter was designed for flying in hot regions and high mountainous terrain, and gained great respect for its performance in those areas.

Aerospatiale developed the SA 315 in response to India's requirement for a high-performance helicopter suitable for use in the Himalayas (the highest mountain range on Earth, located between Tibet and Northern India), and a similar requirement by the South American air forces flying in the Andes.

The machine first flew in March 1969, although at that time it was devoid of external differences from the Alouette II. Apart from the taller skid landing gear, without wheels, the main obvious difference is the electronic equipment in the cockpit.

The Lama is capable of transporting external loads of up to 1135 kg on the external hook, and set up an altitude record of 12,442 m in the Summer of 1969.

The SA 315 B was built under licence at Hindustan Aeronautics under the designation Chetak; according to legend this was the name of a faithful horse in the battle of Haldi Ghati in the year 1546.

The Lama has proved its capability and reliability by successfully taking off and landing at altitudes of 7500 m above sea level. The machine has found many applications, including transport and rescue helicopter in the Austrian and Swiss Alps.

The Lama kit for VR-22 mechanics with petrol engine contains a ready-made fabricated stainless steel fuselage and chassis, finished welded aluminium landing gear, together with GRP cabin and tail panels.

The 8 mm stainless steel drive shaft is supported in two ballraces, and the kit also includes the dome and swashplate driver. The GRP dummy turbine is available separately.

A mechanics fairing is available for the version with VR-22 mechanics. This takes the form of a cockpit, and takes into account the space required by the petrol engine. The hinged doors are large at 340 x 310 mm, and extra strength is obtained from integral corrugations in the GRP frame.

The fuselage is of impressive length, but transport is eased by the removable tail boom: the entire boom can be removed after undoing just three screws.
The model illustrated is fitted out with optional scale accessories. The model is supplied in kit-form, i.e. not assembled.
