In big boost, IAF gets first Apache Guardian attack helicopter


NEW DELHI: The first Apache Guardian attack helicopter AH-64E (I) was formally handed over to the Indian Air Force (IAF) at Boeing production facility in Mesa, Arizona, US on Friday.

新德里: 周五,在美国亚利桑那州梅萨的波音生产基地,首架“阿帕奇卫士”攻击直升机AH-64E (I)被正式移交给印度空军(IAF)。

Air Marshal AS Butola, who represented the IAF, accepted the first Apache in a ceremony at Boeing production facility in the US.

在美国波音生产基地举行的仪式上,印度空军元帅AS Butola代表印度空军接收了首架阿帕奇直升机。

The IAF will induct 22 Apaches by March 2020 under the Rs 13,952 crore deal inked with the US in September 2015.


The first batch of these helicopters is scheduled to be shipped to India by July. Sed aircrew and ground crew have undergone training at the training facilities at US Army base Fort Rucker, Alab.


The addition of Apache is an important step towards modernisation of the IAF’s helicopter fleet.


The Apaches are armed with stinger air-to-air missiles, Hellfire Longbow air-to-ground missiles, guns and rockets. AH-64E Apache is one of the leading multi-role attack helicopters globally and is flown by the US Army.

The deal was signed in 2015 and got delivery in 2019. If it was Congress go nment they would have spent 4 years just to finalize their commission.

Exactly !!!! They haggle and haggle like vegetable market vendors for their commission for decades leaving the country and armed forces vulnerable .... they will sacrifice national security for their familie''s personal gain... Time to make that family history forever this month.... !!

没错! ! ! !几十年来,他们就像菜市场上的小贩一样为了回扣讨价还价,导致这个国家和军队不堪一击……为了家族利益,他们牺牲国家安全。是时候让这个家族退出历史舞台,就在这个月……! !

Seeing their track record, 4 years to finalize the commission would have been outstanding! i doubt..

看看他们过去的表现,4年能谈好回扣就非常不错了! 对此都表示怀疑 .

True...fully agree that Nehruvian era foreign policy of Non-alignment did much harm to India's interests.... gained nothing from this foreign policy...If Congis and and its allies come to power again then it will prove disastrous for India...

There is an urgent need that this Modi go nment must continue for another term...
