Bahrain: Helicopter order confirmed
A deal to supply the Royal Bahrain Air Force with 12 Bell AH-1Z attack helicopters is moving ahead after the United States Department of Defense agreed a $240m modification to the previously announced deal. The aircraft order had previously been confirmed at the Bahrain International Airshow in November last year and was valued at the time at $912m. Delivery is due by August 2022.
