Taiwan Grounds New US-Made Apache Helos Over Malfunction Fears
Taiwan Wednesday grounded its new fleet of US-made Apache attack helicopters for checks after a notice from Washington warning the model could malfunction.
The US will pay for testing and repair fees.
It is just five days since Taiwan’s military displayed the new AH-64E Apache helicopters to the public.
Taiwan last month received the first six of 30 Apache helicopters bought from the US while the remainder will be delivered by the end of 2014.
The Taiwanese army is the first force outside the United States to introduce the AH-64E variant. defensenews
