Apache ca­pa­bil­ity bl­itzkrieg for IAF as decks cleared for deal


As the In­dian Air Force (IAF) awaits con­tract sig­na­ture on the keenly awaited Apache at­tack he­li­copter deal, it has been given a chance to savour the fu­ture of its at­tack copter ca­pa­bil­ity through three re­cent events where the Apache was de­ployed. The ma­te­rial, made avail­able through the Air Wing at the In­dian Em­bassy in Wash­ing­ton D.C., de­picts US Army AH-64 Apache he­li­copters con­duct­ing op­er­a­tions this month (Au­gust 2014) off the flight deck of the air­craft car­rier USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77) de­ployed in the Per­sian Gulf, a ca­pa­bil­ity the IAF hasn’t seen so far. The sec­ond is the live-fire ex­er­cise North­ern Strike this month at Camp Grayling’s Air to Ground Gun­nery Range in Michi­gan
