Finmeccanica has been awarded a contract, valued at over EUR100 million, to supply the Philippine Navy with two AgustaWestland AW159 naval multi-role helicopters.

The aircraft will be built and delivered from the Finmeccanica Helicopter Division’s Yeovil plant, in the United Kingdom, in 2018.

The order includes training and multi-year support and adds to those by the United Kingdom and the Republic of Korea.

The two helicopters will be equipped with mission equipment and sensors, primarily dedicated to anti-submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare roles. The helicopters will also be capable of performing other roles including search and rescue, maritime security and maritime surveillance.
