Apache helicopters to start business in Hyderabad soon

Boeing-Tata in deal to build the deadliest copter
Hyderabad: Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems will manufacture Apache helicopters in Hyderabad. The Apache is the world’s most advanced multi-role combat helicopter and is used by the US Army and a growing number of international defence forces.
The two companies announced that they had formed a joint venture on Monday. “Another big news for Telangana. Boeing & Tata Advanced System JV to manufacture Apache helicopters soon from Hyderabad. #Happening Hyderabad,” minister K.T. Rama Rao tweeted on Monday.
He didn’t specify whether the entire helicopter or parts would be produced, or when production would start and other details. Officials were tight-lipped, saying only Boeing or Tata could reveal details. It is likely that significant parts of the helicopter, 2,200 of which are in service in different defence forces, could be manufactured in Hyderabad.
