The United States is considering shifting Boeing AH-64D Apaches from South to deployment in Afghanistan, according to The Korea Times. U.S. Army officials are wrestling with how to maintain deployment of four combat aviation brigades to Iraq and one to Afghanistan with what they say are an inadequate number of brigades. Quoting a senior South Korean diplomat, the newspaper said there have been informal, periodic discussions among officials of that nation and U.S. forces there on shifting the Apaches. The battalion eyed for the move includes 20 of the attack aircraft. For related news
