Apache Helicopters Inducted into Indian Air Force

Tuesday 3 September 2019

NEW DELHI (WION) — Eight US-made Apache AH-64E attack helicopters have been inducted into the Indian Air Force (IAF) at the Pathankot Air Base in Punjab on Tuesday.

Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa is the chief guest of the event. Watch this video to know more.

The AH-64E would replace the old Russia-made Mi-35 attack helicopters. Mi-35s are serving in the IAF for the past around four decades and have almost lived its life.

One of the most advanced multi-role combat helicopters in the world, Apache AH-64E is flown by the US army. It is the second major induction by the IAF within five months. IAF had inducted the advanced heavy-lift Chinook helicopters at the Chandigarh airbase in March.
