AgustaWestland AW139


AgustaWestland AW139M

The AW139M designation was first used for the customized military version for the US Air Force Common Vertical Lift Support Program or CVLSP to seek a replacement for the UH-1N . Manufactured in the Philadelphia facility and tailored with US military technology from suppliers across the nation, the AW139M includes a high-definition FLIR, infrared detection and countermeasures and heavy duty landing gear.

The Italian Air Force was the first operator of an AW139 dedicated military variant, with the first of their HH-139A helicopters delivered in early 2012. Since then, military-tailored variants of the helicopter have been supplied to Egypt, Qatar, Pakistan, Thailand, and Malta, in most cases for search and rescue missions.

In 2018 won the USAF competition in a joint-venture with Boeing as the MH-139A Grey Wolf
