Poland has signed a contract worth 8.25 billion zlotys ($1.83 billion) to buy 32 AW149 helicopters from Italian defense group Leonardo, the Polish defence minister said on Friday.
The multi-role helicopters will be built by Leonardo’s Polish unit PZL Swidnik, and the contract includes logistics, training and simulator packages. They will be delivered between 2023 and 2029, Leonardo said in a statement. Poland will induct AW149 helicopters into it’s army.
