The Afghanistan Air Force on Tuesday received two Mi-35 attack helicopters gifted by India.

In 2016, Kabul requested India to repair and provide new parts for the Air Force’s 11 Mi-35s and 7 transport aircraft. In the same year, New Delhi supplied 4 Mi-25s. India shipped 2 attack choppers to the Afghan Air Force in May 2019.

“Two Mi-35 attack helicopters gifted by India to Afghan forces,” Fawad Aman, spokesman for the Afghan Defense Ministry, tweeted.

The Indian authorities including ambassador to Kabul, Vinay Kumar, handed over the attack helicopters to the Afghan Air Force during a ceremony at Kabul Airport.
