Army Aviation Cheetahs to Congo? (The Tribune)
The Tribune, Chandigarh, India - Chandigarh Stories
The above report says that five Army Aviation Cheetahs are on their way to Congo to take part in the UN mission. That certainly is a first for Army aviators going on Peace Keeping abroad. However I cant escape the feeling that this is again due to some inter force rivalry ? The army obviously claims that this is required as the AF choppers are not enough. Why not just ask the IAF to send more choppers if all is hunky dory? go figure.
