Finmeccanica has won a contract to provide two AgustaWestland AW 159 helicopters worth over 100 million euros to the Philippine Navy.

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 company said in a statement Thursday.

The two helicopters will be equipped with mission equipment and sensors 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.

Mauro Moretti, Finmeccanica’s Chief Executive Officer and General Manager, said: “We will provide the customer with support and training solutions that will enable them to take full advantage of the capabilities of its new helicopters.”
