DEFENCE SEEKS NEW LIGHT HELICOPTERS FOR SPECIAL OPERATIONS | Australian Aviation

The Department of Defence has begun the process of acquiring new light helicopters for Army special forces support with the release of a request for information (RFI).

“The helicopters are to be proven (already in service) commercial or military off-the-shelf, optimised for operating in dense urban environments, and capable of being rapidly deployed by air transport in ADF Boeing C-17A Globemaster III aircraft,” the RFI, released on the Australian Government’s AusTender website on Tuesday, reads.

“The helicopter should be capable of being fitted with simple, proven, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) equipment and weapons systems.”
