Indian Air Force ramps up chopper fleet

New Delhi : The Indian Air Force Friday inducted the most-modern Mi-17V5 helicopter, its latest buy from Russia, to ramp up the ferrying of troops and supplies to remote and mountainous areas.

Defence Minister A.K. Antony formally handed over the keys of the helicopters to the IAF squadron that will operate them. The IAF chief, Air Chief Marshal Norman Anil Kumar Browne, was present on the occasion.

The helicopters, 80 of which were bought in 2008 for $1.34 billion, started arriving in September 2011 and were undergoing pre-induction checks.
