The Indian government has officially selected Boeing’s AH-64D Apache Block III in its three-year effort to buy new attack helicopters. Contract negotiations are expected to begin shortly. Confirming what had been unofficially known for a while, IAF chief Air Chief Marshal N.A.K. Browne said today that the service had chosen the Boeing AH-64D Apache Longbow Block III as its next attack helicopter. The Apache beat Russia’s Mi-28NE in a competition for 22 helicopters.
