Turkish Army Aviation Chinooks
Güvercinlik air base near the Turkish capital, Ankara, is home to the heavy-lifters of the Turkish Land Forces. The Turkish Chinooks are an entirely different class of rotorcraft to the other light and medium transport/ utility helicopters in the army aviation’s inventory. Onur Kurç and Tayfun Yaşar joined them on exercise.
The Kara Kuvvetleri Komutanlıgı (Turkish Land Forces) have amassed plenty of experience in helicopter-based airmobile operations. Rotary-wing units have demonstrated their importance during recent cross-border security operations such as Euphrates Shield and Olive Branch in Syria.
