Apache helicopters with modern technology and firepower from the US will be deployed at the Pathankot airbase on Tuesday. 22 Apache helicopters have been signed from the US, with 11 deployed in Pathankot along the Pak border and 11 in Jorhat in Assam along the China border. The first fleet of 8 Apaches will be deployed on Tuesday. This will make it easy to monitor the movements of Pakistan and China.
An Air Force official told the news agency that Air Chief Marshal BS Dhanoa will be present at the induction ceremony at the Pathankot airbase. The deployment of Apache will further strengthen the strength of the Indian Air Force. The deployment of Apache in the Airforce is being done at a time when Dhanoa has given a statement that we are flying 40 year old fighter. The Air Chief himself has arrived here since Sunday.
