The government of Ghana, led by the National Democratic Congress party, has proposed the purchase of four Mil Mi-171SH heilcopters.  The request was referred to the joint Committees of Finance and Defense for consideration and report to the House by the Speaker.  The proposed cost si 64,365,584.79 euros and various financing options are available  and a medium term loan facility via Fidelity Bank has been put forward.

The proposal has seemingly not gone down well in the West Afrian nation where the global recession is hitting the country hard.  However, the proposal points out that the chosen model of “combat transport” helicopter can act as both a troop carrier and a gunship, as well as various other roles.
