0 comments

"India is to deliver two Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) HSA 315B Cheetah/Cheetal utility helicopters to Afghanistan in January, regional media reported on 11 December.

The new-build helicopters, which will be used for observation and reconnaissance purposes, are being supplied to the Afghan Air Force (AAF) as part of a wider defence and security co-operation deal between the two countries."

- India to shortly deliver new helos to Afghanistan

Part of a deliberate, calibrated move, be it one with a lot more scope for expansion.

Update: The original news article Janes cited in the article above. Additionally informs of the possibility of stationing Indian trainers in Afghanistan & refurbish a hardware maintenance facility.

Godspeed
