These Apache helicopters have reportedly been deployed to provide air support to the Indian Army troops.

This news comes amid reports of the IAF moving its assets including fighter jets to the forward bases and air fields in wake of the ongoing dispute between India and China at LAC.

The critical front-line assets of the IAF, including the Sukhoi-30 MKI, Mirage 2000 and Jaguar fighter jets, have been moved to the advanced positions so that they can fly in at a very short notice to carry out operations.
