E-model Apaches for Indian Army – Boeing has begun production of Apache helicopters for the Indian Army in Mesa, Arizona. The business will deliver six AH-64E Apaches to meet the Indian Army’s requirements.
Tata Boeing Aerospace Limited (TBAL) delivered the Indian Army’s first AH-64 Apache fuselage earlier this year from its sophisticated facility in Hyderabad, India.
“We are pleased to reach yet another significant milestone, highlighting Boeing’s unwavering commitment to supporting India’s defense capabilities,” said Salil Gupte, president of Boeing India. “The AH-64’s advanced technology and proven performance will improve the Indian Army’s operational readiness and defense capabilities.”
