Tata Boeing Aerospace (TBAL), a Hyderabad-based joint venture (JV) between Tata Advanced Systems (TASL) and The Boeing Company, delivered on Thursday the first fuselage for six AH-64 Apache attack helicopters ordered by the Indian Army.

TBAL has produced and supplied 190 Apache fuselages to Boeing’s Apache final assembly plant in Mesa, Arizona. More than 90 per cent of the parts used in these aero-structure assemblies are manufactured in India through over a hundred micro, small, and medium enterprises (MSMEs), supporting the government’s Make in India vision.
