One of these projects is associated with the demonstration of the Turkish T-129 ATAK helicopters (the attack helicopter of the Turkish manufacturer Turkish Aerospace Industries - TAI) with the possibility of a subsequent mass purchase of these helicopters by the Azerbaijani Air Force. The helicopter was created based on the basic Italian model Agusta A129 Mangusta. Its flight range is about 561 km, the crew is two people, cruising speed is 269 km / h.
