South Korean army says it conducted successful helicopter missile drill

SEOUL (Reuters) - The South Korean army said on Wednesday it conducted a successful air-to-air missile firing drill from Apache helicopters which was designed to respond to “any provocation from the enemy”.

It was the first time the South Korean army test-fired Stinger missiles from Apache attack helicopters, which were introduced to the army in May last year, the South’s army forces said in a statement.

The statement did not mention whether the drill was conducted specifically to address North Korean provocations.
