Bengaluru, Feb 16 (PTI) State-run aerospace behemoth Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) will supply spares and provide engine repair services to Argentinian Air Force's two-tonne class helicopters.
The HAL inked an agreement with the air force of the South American country for extending the services, officials said.
