Posted 18 March 2019 · Add Comment

Turkish Aerospace has announced the launch of its “T129 ATAK Brazil Roadshow” before LAAD, which will be held April 2-5, of 2019 in Rio de Janeiro.

 

T129 ATAK Multirole Combat Helicopter will demonstrate its capabilities and performance on March 26, 2019 in Taubate and March 28, 2019 in Brasilia.

T129 ATAK Helicopter is a new generation, tandem and two-seat, twin engine helicopter, specifically designed for attack and reconnaissance purposes. The T129 ATAK incorporates a totally new system philosophy, with new engines (LHTEC CTS 800-4A), new avionics, visionics and weapon systems, a modified airframe, upgraded drive train and new tail rotor.

T129 ATAK has been optimised to meet and exceed the performance requirements of the most challenging geographical and environmental conditions. The first batch of T129 ATAK Helicopters has already been delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces and is in service supporting the missions of the Turkish Army.  As an integral member of the NATO alliance, the Turkish Armed Forces have always been at the leading edge of innovative defence technology. With the strong endorsement of the Turkish Armed Forces, the already significant international interest on the T129 ATAK as a superior alternative attack helicopter is expected to intensify.

President and CEO of Turkish Aerospace Temel Kotil said: ‘’Within the first Roadshow of T129 ATAK Helicopter in Latin America we as Turkish Aerospace, are going to demonstrate a real show and to display our products once again in the most important exhibition of the region.  Besides, pursuing the benefits and abilities of our company, we are going to show once again that our company is one of the greatest aerospace companies in the World. This very first presence in Latin America through our T129 ATAK Helicopter as well as other products emphasizes how ambitious we are.”
