Apache AH-64E

Tata and Boeing will start work on a manufacturing facility for the Apache AH-64E gunship fuselage of which 22 have been ordered by the Indian Air Force.

Charles Burke, Director of Business Development for Boeing’s Global Strike Rotorcraft said at the Dubai Air Show held last week, “Well, we’ve heard from the Indian government that the Apache’s the last man standing.”

IAF sources confirmed that the aircraft, which is competing with the Russian Mi-28 for the IAF’s tender for 22 attack helicopters, has already completed trials in Jaisalmer and is currently undergoing high altitude flight and maneuverability demonstrations at Leh.
