Turkish Aerospace Industries, Inc. (TAI) participates in the Bahrain International Air Show (BIAS) under the umbrella of the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries (SSM) that will be held on 16-18 January 2014.
During the show, TAI will display “T129 ATAK” Advanced Attack and Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter in the static display and a flight demo will also be held during the show.
ATAK Contract has been started as a result of an effort to meet the “attack & tactical reconnaissance helicopter” requirements of Turkish Armed Forces. T129 is the result of the integration of nationally developed high-tech avionic equipment and weapon systems on to the combat proven AgustaWestland A129 airframe, with upgraded engines, transmission and rotor blades. Optimized for “hot & high” environments, T129 is the most efficient Attack Helicopter in its class.
