Subaru, June 22, 2022 - Tokyo – Subaru Corporation is pleased to announce that we were awarded a contract of SUBARU BELL 412EPX, from Japan Coast Guard.

The helicopter is scheduled to be delivered to the customer in 2025. It is expected to be used for ensuring security at sea, search and rescue, responding maritime disasters, and transportation of many loads.

In addition to that, SUBARU BELL 412EPX provides better operational capability and efficiency with improved performance such as extended hover ceiling and increased useful load.
