The Armed Forces of Malta are expecting to take delivery of a brand new Augusta AW139 helicopter at the end of the month.
A first picture of the helicopter was issued today.
It will be the first time in the history of the AFM that it would be taking delivery of a brand new helicopter. Another is on order. Both are co-financed by the EU. The contract for the first helicopter amounted to some €20.3m including the aircraft, spares, ground support and training.
