  • Turkish Aerospace Industries T129

    The Agusta A129 (then AgustaWestland AW129) was selected in 2007 to be the basis of the Turkish attack and tactical reconnaissance helicopter ATAK program. The resulting T129, assembled in Turkey, integrates indigenous avionics and weapon systems with upgraded engines, transmission and rotor blades.

    First flew on September 28, 2009, the first nine aircraft are in the T129A or EDH (Erken Duhul Helikopteri, Early Delivery Helicopter) variant and expected to be upgraded in the final T129B standard when all systems become available
