In the early 1970’s the US Army wanted a replacement for the AH-1 Cobra so companies submitted proposals. In July 1973 the list was shortened to Hughes and Bell with each building a prototype in 1975. The Army selected the Hughes helicopter because its landing gear was more stable and the main rotor was more damage tolerant. In 1981 3 pre-production AH-64As were given to the Army for testing and named Apache. The Apache went into production in 1982 and has evolved into one of the deadly machines over the battle field.

The first Indian Air Force Attack Helicopter Squadron was commissioned on November1, 1983 and named the 125th Helicopter Squadron “Gladiators”. The 125th HS is stationed at Pathankot AFS and equipped with the Apache AH-64E replacing their Mi-35. India had ordered 22 Apaches with the last one arriving in June 2020. In February 2020 they ordered 6 AH-64Es for the Army to be delivered by 2023. There are 2 squadrons of AH-64Es, one at Pathankot and the other at Jorhat AB with both locations receiving 10 AH-64Es and 2 helicopters in reserve.
