The Indian Air Force inducted the first batch of US-made Apache AH-64E at the Pathankot Air Force Station. It is the second US built helicopter to join the IAF arsenal and is considered to be one of the most advanced multi-role combat helicopter. The Apache attack chopper has been customised to suit the IAF’s future requirements and can track up to 128 targets in a minute. The IAF has signed a contract with Boeing and the US government for 22 Apache attack helicopters. The first eight helicopters have been delivered and the last batch is to be delivered by March 2020.
