Turkey has been looking to modernize its attack helicopter fleet since the mid-1990s, but the process has mostly served as an object lesson in how not to buy defense equipment. DID has covered difficulties with this competition before; after numerous snafus, technology transfer and production issues, and canceled competitions, all 3 invited American manufacturers had abandoned the competition entirely.
In July 2006, Turkish Defense Minister Vecdi Gonul announced that Turkey would continue talks with Denel of South Africa (AH-2A Rooivalk) and Agusta Aerospace of Italy (A129 International) for Turkey's Land Forces Command's Tactical Reconnaissance & Attack Helicopter (ATAK) Project. The Franco-German EADS Eurocopter (Tiger) and Kamov of Russia (Ka-50-2 Erdogan with IAI) were eliminated.
Neither of the finalists had been exported before, and at the time they were competing for co-production of 30 helicopters with options for another 20 more. That projected $1.6 billion contract was still well short of the 91 attack helicopters originally called for when the program began. Still, it was progress.
Even that "final" round seemed imperiled, however, following reports of the Turkish military's deep dissatisfaction with the choices; nevertheless, the competition survived long enough to pick a "winner": an updated version of its A129. Now, signed industrial arrangements contracts with AugustaWestland allow the 12-year program to move forward at last Last edited by jofizo on 6-11-2013 08:27 AM

The Winner



Defense Minister Gonul made the Turkish perspective clear long ago when he noted that "the goal is to co-produce the helicopters, not to buy them off the shelf." The Houston Chronicle reports that bidding rules also included full access to the aircraft's specific software codes, and a written guarantee from the provider's government that there will be no political obstacles to the export of the arms.

These terms have become reality. On March 30/07, Finmeccanica subsidiary AugustaWestland issued this announcement :

"The Turkish Executive Committee has announced today that it is to start contract negotiations with AgustaWestland, in partnership with Turkish Aviation Industry (TAI), for the Tactical Reconnaissance and Attack Helicopter
