Airbus Helicopters has delivered the first three of the 11 AS565 MBe Panther helicopters to Indonesia.

This follows the contract signature in late 2014 with PT Dirgantara Indonesia for 11 AS565 MBe helicopters aimed for the Indonesian Navy.

The delivery of the remaining helicopters will run through to 2018. Under the agreement, Airbus Helicopters will supply the helicopters to PT Dirgantara Indonesia, who will reassemble and outfit these rotorcraft in-country, acting as the design authority. This will cover the installation of the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) suite which includes a dipping sonar and torpedo launch systems.
