The eight units of the Boeing manufactured combat helicopter Apache AH64E (I) known as 'Tank Killers', provide close air support to armoured formations and ground forces by flying at 'tree-top heights'. Furthermore, there is another contract worth Rs 4168 Crores in pipeline for acquiring six Apache choppers for the Indian Army.
