In the April issue of Air Forces Monthly (AFM), we look at how the war in Afghanistan was a baptism of fire for the British Army’s AgustaWestland Apache AH1 Attack helicopters. Time after time, the Army Air Corps gunships turned the tide of the battle. Tim Ripley looks back at the role of the Apache Force in Operation Herrick.

The Colombian Air Force has been waging a war against the outlawed FARC for several decades. Joe Copalman reports on how the A-29 Super Tucano is now at the forefront of the action.

Kees van Der Mark examines the role of the target-towing A-4N Skyhawks operated by Flight Systems in the skies over Germany.

In the second part of our Aircraft Profile on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, Alan Warnes and Dave Allport provide a breakdown on the bases and units operating this remarkable aircraft in the United States.

Continuing with our new series, Briefings, Tony Holmes takes a look at the operations of USS Midway’s Carrier Air Wing Five, as it found itself conducting strike operations from Vietnam to the Gulf War.

As always, AFM’s Dave Allport brings you the latest military aviation news from around the world.
