TAI Displays T129 ATAK Helicopter at BIAS 2014
Turkish Aerospace Industries, Inc. (TAI) participates in the Bahrain International Air Show (BIAS) under the umbrella of the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM) that will be held on 16-18 January 2014.
During the show, TAI will display "T129 ATAK" Advanced Attack and Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter in the static display and a flight demo will also be held during the show.
ATAK Contract has been started as a result of an effort to meet the "attack & tactical reconnaissance helicopter" requirements of Turkish Armed Forces. T129 is the result of the integration of nationally developed high-tech avionic equipment and weapon systems on to the combat proven AgustaWestland A129 airframe, with upgraded engines, transmission and rotor blades. Optimized for "hot & high" environments, T129 is the most efficient Attack Helicopter in its class.
