For all those saying shame to the Nigerian army that chadian helicopters are bombing Nigerian territory, you all should remember that this operation is a Multi National Joint Task force(MNJTF) operation agreed upon by four countries Nigeria, Niger, Cameron and Chad against Bokoharam. At this point we all should be concerned about the outcome of this operation which is hoping that these operations helps to crush those insurgents.
Good bless Nigeria.......samchelsea

very true especially at this critical time of election cos I can't imagine how people will line up to vote knowing in their minds that someone in the same queue might be a suicide bomber

I believe all fighter helicopters are not the same in terms of capabilities and so if they can utilize those very well in this fight I believe they can still achieve something good with them
Re: Chadian Helicopters Used In Fighting Boko Haram Today (Photo) by EMANY01(m): 10:00pm On Feb 01, 2015
That looks like a Super Frelon(super hornet).
Not exactly an attack helicopter like I had expected.
OP are you sure about those choppers being Hinds ?
MI -24s have almost similar airframe design with the super frelon(Sa-321) French.
I remember reading somewhere that Chad buys almost entirely French for its military .

stupid post. does that helicopter look armed to you?
that bird did not fight any BOKO HARAM.it may have been used to supply troops, but as for fight, no. it did not fight. unless it landed on a Bokoharam militant and crushed him
vislabraye:
I thought the chopper would have guns by the sides. Any way, i hope they should take over our fight.
thank you. you thought this because unlike some of the other people that looked at the picture, you had sense and you used it well in thinking.

I believe that they were at that point putting everything in place before heading to fight the insurgents or they just finished their assignment for the day and were dis-engaging

no they are not dropping barrel bombs, the Syrian operational theatre is different from the one in Nigeria. BH columns are highly mobile, they don't just cluster in one place and wait for a barrel of bomb to fall from heaven.

I believe you don't know what an attack helicopter is or how it operates. does that place look like an operational base to you. so while will they allow a vulnerable unarmed combat bird that cannot defend itself to fly into the frontline before arming it up.
