Afghan helicopters are prepped in a Kabul hanger prior to departing for combat operations in Helmand. The MD-530 Jengi (Warrior in Dari), is the newest in the Afghan Air Force’s arsenal to support convoy escort, aerial reconnaissance, armed over-watch, and close air support to Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF).
