Polanya nın KRUK Programı
One non-European competitor is the Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) T129 Atak helicopter. Relatively new to the market, the twin-engine multirole combat helicopter is currently in operations with the Turkish Land Forces and was deployed in May 2016 for trials with Pakistan Army Aviation.
A TAI spokesperson in a statement said that one of the strengths of the rotorcraft in the competition was its maintenance and life-cycle costs.
'As a candidate for the Kruk programme, T129 Atak is the most modern, agile and robust, day/night, all-weather attack and reconnaissance weapon system, [which is] now being offered to the Polish Air Force to provide best performance and manoeuvre capability for all-weather conditions.'
The spokesperson continued: 'Through effective design, on board diagnostics, minimum crew requirements for maintenance and a simplified logistical footprint, the T129 Atak's life-cycle costs are very competitive and almost certainly unbeatable in its class.'
The tender timeline for the programme to replace the Mi-24 remains confidential at this stage and the Polish government remain tight-lipped on the next steps.
Other companies that have also expressed an interest include Airbus Helicopters and Boeing. The tender launch for 16 to 32 aircraft is anticipated later this year or early into 2018.
