The Indian Air Force will continue to operate assault choppers and will not transfer its assets to the Army that is also raising a fleet of attack helicopters, Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa has said.

He added that the IAF was looking forward to inducting the Apache attack helicopter, which he described as one of the best in the world, and would continue to support the Army during operational needs.

He made it clear that IAF was not keen on transferring either its new Apache choppers that are to be delivered or the Mi 35/25 already in operation.

“On induction of attack helicopters by the Army, the IAF has maintained that, it has no objection to any internal restructuring within the Army as long as this does not pre-suppose the transfer of assets of the Air Force or impinge on the enunciated role of the IAF.

We will continue operating and maintaining the attack helicopter fleet comprising Mi-25/35, Apache and LCH and will provide all necessary support to the Army,” the Air Chief responded to queries by ET. Read More…
