All about Chinook heavy-lift chopper

The Chinook is a multi-purpose vertical lift platform that transports men and cargo. It also contributes significantly to humanitarian and disaster relief efforts. "Rapid mobility will allow the IAF to use this asset to its full potential as needed," the official stated.

At a ceremony held at Air Force Station Chandigarh on March 25, 2019, the Indian Air Force formally inducted the CH-47 (F) I Chinook heavy-lift helicopter into its inventory.

The contract

In September 2015, the IAF inked a contract with Boeing Limited for the delivery of 15 Chinook helicopters. These have arrived in Chandigarh and the North East, where they will be deployed.

The helicopter was modified to meet the IAF's future needs and capability roadmap. It boasts a digital cockpit management system that is completely integrated, sophisticated cargo handling capabilities, and an electronic warfare suite.
