New Delhi: Chinook and Apache helicopters took part in the Republic Day flypast on Sunday as their debut. Both were recently inducted into the Indian Air Force.
The Chinooks can airlift diverse loads in remote locations. It is a heavy lift, twin rotor helicopter which has enhanced IAF’s lift capability across a range of military and HADR missions.
The Apache is a versatile helicopter capable of firing air to air and air to ground missiles, rockets and front gun aided through fire control radar. It has provided the Indian armed forces a significant edge against the enemy on the battlefield.
