The first four of 22 Boeing AH-64E Apache attack helicopters will be delivered to the Indian Air Force (IAF) in August.
India and the US signed a $2.2 billion deal in 2015 for 22 AH-64Es and 15 CH-47F Chinook heavy-lift helicopters for the IAF.
The gunships are expected to arrive via US Air Force C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft at Pathankot Air Force Station in northern India, where they will be assembled, IHS Jane’s reported on April 11.
Previously, the helicopters were expected to be delivered in July. "We plan to deliver the first of 22 Apache starting July,” David Koopersmith, Vice-President and General Manager of Boeing’s Vertical Lift division was quoted as saying by the Indian media in February.
The remaining 18 AH-64Es are expected to be delivered by the end of 2020.
