Indian Govt approves purchase of 61 AH-64 D Apache attack Helicopter

http://www.sunday-guardian.com/news/...pache-gunships

39 for the army 22 for the airforce. This is in addition to 114 LCH (Light Combat Helicopter) for the Army and 65 LCH for the airforce.https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=...68911936,d.cWc

The army currently operates 20 out of a total order of 60 Rudra helicopter gunship and the airforce operates 20-30 Mi 35 Soviet era gunships which will be phased out with the arrival of the apaches.
The Indian aiforce tried the AH64 d against the Russian Mi-28 havoc in selection trials and the Apache emerged the victor.

That's a potent number of attack helicopters, should serve them well.

Well, the UK chose it as the basis for its modified licence builds, including the 'Longbow' - so it must be a basically sound and potent design. Heck, one of our Royals even got to go head to head with the Taliban in Afghanistan flying one.

Its good news,

Indian Army was in bad need of Helicopters. it will be a positive step.

Some time in future Paramilitary forces may have a Helicopter Wing for its own exclusive use,

Maoist Insurgents pose one of the greatest threat to internal security, Helicopters will be handy. specially in difficult terrains.

There are some Rudra Helicopters of HAL but Apache is a welcome addition.
