New Helicopters For Portugal Army.

Wed May 24, 2006 4:13 pm

Hi!

Finnally ( well aparently it's looks like it now!!! ) Portugal will purchase the helicopter to replace the good old Alouette III. According to portuguese media Portugal Army is comming out with a bid for new light helicopters. In 1999 the winner was the Europter EC635 but due to delays Portugal cancelled it! Now it looks that the front runner is the Agusta A109 ( actually since some years ago this model was considered the replacer.... ) and Portugal will buy some units for the Army and also for the Air Force ( the Alouette III replacer ). Besides that Portugal Army will also receive 10 NH90 from 2008 on!
regards
CV990, the Maserati of the skies!
