Germany buys a large batch of military transport helicopters

Germany intends to purchase a large batch of heavy military helicopters.

According to a German high-ranking military official, in the near future, the German Ministry of Defense intends to sign a contract for the purchase of a large batch of heavy military helicopters. It is assumed that the party will include from 45 to 60 aircraft, in this case, we are talking about the acquisition of American aircraft.

It should be clarified that to date, the Air Force of Germany already has morally and physically worn-out aircraft, which need a complete replacement, while all existing heavy helicopters are supposed to be replaced by 2022 year.

Experts believe that the purchase of military helicopters is associated with the rearmament of the FRG, with the aim of enhancing the defense capability.
