People interested in seeing Taiwan’s most advanced attack helicopter, the
AH-64E Apache, will have a chance to do so later this month, when the military will hold an open day at one of its bases, the country’s Ministry of National Defense said Tuesday.
The helicopters will be among the military aircraft, equipment and vehicles to be put on display Oct. 24 at Tsoying Naval Base in the southern city of Kaohsiung for public viewing, according to ministry spokesperson Major General Luo Shou-he.
In addition to the Apaches, visitors will get a glimpse of the UH-60M Black Hawk helicopter recently acquired from the United States, he said. Some of the Navy’s vessels will be opened to the public for a tour, he added.
Demonstrations of combat skills will also be staged on the open day, Luo said.
The event is one of five open days at different military bases this year in an effort to strengthen exchanges between the military and the public. [FULL STORY]
