The Brazilian Navy will receive the first of eight upgraded AgustaWestland Super Lynx AH-11B helicopters in February.

Leonardo Helicopters is modernizing the helicopters under a June 2014 contract issued by the Brazilian Navy Aeronautical Directorate (DAerM) for $113 million, IHS Janes reported quoting the Brazilian Navy as saying Wednesday.

The initial three helicopters were due for delivery in 2018 but were postponed due to the management of the programme by Leonardo Helicopters, the navy said.

Another two modernised helicopters are due for delivery later in 2019, with deliveries to be complete in 2022.
