ONE COMMENT ON THIS POST To “Apache, Chinook helicopters to debut at Delhi R-Day Parade”

  1. jalandhara says:

    Apache and Chinook helicopters are manufactured by Boeing , and in no way represent the indigenous capability of India. Rafale. What is the purpose of this show to exhibit them? They are not new either as both types were heavily used in the 2 Iraq wars years ago.
    Bets for the country to showcase what really has been achieved with indigenous talents.
