The Indonesian Army Aviation unit’s first Boeing AH-64E Guardian is now conducting test flights in the US, according to images distributed widely on social media.

The first three AH-64Es out of eight aircraft are expected to reach Indonesia in November 2017 and will be pressed into service with 11 Squadron, in Semarang, Central Java, with the final five expected during the first trimester of 2018.

New hangars and workshops have been built to accommodate and service the new AH-64Es. Eleven Sqn currently flies a mix of Bell 205s and Bell 412s although the former are slated for retirement later
