AgustaWestland, Sikorsky

Turkey expects to make a decision in its general purpose helicopter contest in June, having increased its cross-service requirement from 78 to 115 aircraft. AgustaWestland and Sikorsky are battling to secure the deal, respectively offering the AW149 and a T-70 derivative of the S-70 Black Hawk. Ankara's defence industries undersecretariat (SSM) says the selected helicopter will be produced by Turkish Aerospace Industries, with the company to undertake all manufacturing activities beyond the programme's 78th aircraft.
