Five AH-64 Apache attack helicopters of the British Royal Force have arrived to the Amari Air Base in Estonia as a part of a wider NATO deployment in the Baltic region, press service of the Estonian Defence Forces stated Saturday.
The helicopters are expected to take part in the Spring Storm NATO drills and cover the alliance's contingency at the military base near Tapa in Estonia.
The redeployed helicopters will soon carry out their first flights in Estonian airspace, before they join exercises with four British AW159 Wildcat multirole helicopters, which arrived at the base earlier.
