Hyderabad: Tata Boeing Aerospace Limited has delivered the 250th fuselage for the AH-64 Apache attack helicopter manufactured in its state-of-the-art facility in Hyderabad, the company said on Wednesday. These fuselages are manufactured for customers around the world, including the US Army, and most recently, the six on order with the Indian Army.

In a news release, TBAL said the delivery of the 250th made-in-India fuselage is a testimony to the company’s continuous endeavour to bolster India’s defence capabilities and advancing the country’s indigenous manufacturing prowess.

The joint venture between Boeing and Tata Advanced Systems Limited (TASL) employs over 900 engineers and technicians. The company uses cutting-edge robotics, automation, and advanced aerospace concepts in its manufacturing processes.

The TBAL’s 14,000-square metre Hyderabad facility serves as a sole global supplier for Apache fuselages, with over 90 per cent of the parts used in the Apache aerostructure assemblies manufactured in India through more than 100 micro, small, and medium enterprise (MSME) suppliers.
