The Indian Air Force (IAF) crew has begun training on Apache attack helicoptors in the US, officials said on Monday.

The Boeing Apache is a twin-turbo shaft attack helicopter with tandem cockpit for two persons and will enhance the combat capability of the IAF, they said.

The Defence Acquisition Council had last year cleared a proposal to buy six more Boeing Co Apache attack helicopters for the Indian Army at a cost of around Rs 4,168 crore.

The order had followed India’s previous purchase of 22 Apache and Chinook helicopters from Boeing in 2015.
