Bundeswehr, March 25, 2017 - Gao, Mali - The last stage for the deployment of the German Army’s Tiger combat helicopters to Mali is accomplished.

The first two of the four helicopters arrived at their location in the north of Mali on March 25 at 14.49 local time.

They covered the approximately 1,000 kilometer route from the capital Bamako in Gao with a scheduled tank stop.

Earlier this week, the two Tigers were transported from Leipzig to Bamako with an Antonov AN-124-100 and prepared for the flight. For the air transport to Mali the helicopters had to be partially disassembled.

The Tigers are to carry out protection and close-up support in the framework of The United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).

The two remaining combat helicopters will follow shortly.
