India to induct four Chinook choppers to India's strength today
There have been tensions between India and Pakistan in recent days. Amidst all this, the Indian Air Force (IAF) on Monday, March 25 will induct the heavy-lift Chinook helicopters which will add the strength of Indian army capabilities.
These chinook helicopters can transport artillery guns in high altitudes and troops for action. These helicopters will be deployed in Chandigarh and Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa will induct the first unit of four Chinook heavy-lift helicopters there.
This will be an advantage to Indian army as they can easily now mobilize to troops to high reaches along the LoC and China frontier along with artillery guns.
These helicopters can fly at speed of nearly 175 mph and carry payloads greater than 21,000 lbs.
