Combat aviation assets with modern avionics, electro-optics and weapon systems can perform multiple tasks in the entire spectrum of conflict in varied and inhospitable terrain including high altitude areas.
The journey of last 33 years for the Army Aviation Corps, since its raising, has witnessed both qualitative and quantitative growth. The Arm, in its relatively short journey has remained poised towards expansion and modernisation. The Arm has been supported very well by the organisation and remains committed to be a major game changer as a potent force multiplier in future.
