Montenegro received the first Bell 412 helicopter


According to aviation expert Svetozar Yokanovich, “this 2002 machine of the year, previously operated by the New York police, was taken on April 7 in a disassembled condition to Prague (Czech Republic), and from there, after assembly, flew to Golubovitsy.”

Two more will follow this helicopter, but already new ones.

Earlier, “The United States offered Montenegro, at no cost, Sikorsky UH-60 Black Hawk helicopters deducted from the US Army aviationbut the cost of their survey and the cost of the flight hour were exorbitant for the country's military budget, ”said the expert.

There were other applicants - Airbus Helicopters Н145М and Leonardo AW139. Their price did not work either - the Montenegrin budget for the purchase did not exceed 30 million euros.

As a result, the defense ministry chose the cheapest option, providing for an agreement with Bell Helicopter for the amount of 29,9 million euros. For this money, the company agreed to supply one used 412EPI helicopter and two new Canadian production lines.

Currently, the Montenegrin Air Force, formed in 2006, has only five SOKO SA341 Gazelle light helicopters of a licensed Yugoslav assembly.

          This is a 2002 car previously used by NYPD.
          Well, it's like buying a car in a taxi park ... You can not watch for the year of production, but ... oh well, by the principle it’s better to go bad than to go well ...

          Or maybe it’s going to add to the tank as an additive, so that it flies, changes, and delights the mattresses with the look and sound laughing

      Slovakia exchanged 3 fully equipped MI-17s for two of the same g ... at the request of the FSA. And I bought 2 more at a price of 12 million per pc. One crashed a month later, a pilot died and now a disabled firefighter, the second is permanently being repaired

        We, too, probably don’t drive old equipment into Syria.

          This technique, due to the fact that the Syrian has been knocked out over the 6 years of the war, restores the Syrian’s park that was somehow killed. In addition, we have our own rearmament program, which is not a cheap pleasure. And what mattresses have problems other than the one they saw in white coffins in our coffin?

          Under barmaley it is possible and for free old, but serviceable equipment to give.

    Well got what? Again a panic, and why not MI-17? And to hell with them, in the existing conditions, it’s high time to talk about the beginning of a serious redistribution of sales markets. Moreover, with the use of heavy weapons, as in that advertisement - you do not want to, then we are sailing to you ...

    I thought that the main landfill in Europe is in the ukroine, and there are still countries that, in exchange for loyalty, are embroiling ancient aircraft artifacts!

    This helicopter is always circling the city in Hollywood action movies. And if Montenegro does not have money for helicopters, let them collect many, many quadrocopters ...
