Poland invites contractors to negotiate army helicopters deal
On the 18th of October, the Polish Ministry of Defense has announced inviting Leonardo-Finmeccanica, Airbus and Sikorsky to discuss the purchase of military helicopters for around $254 million.
Such a call for proposals was issued after earlier in October Poland cancelled a deal with Airbus Helicopters for 50 Caracal helicopters worth $3.4 billion. Both Leonardo and Sikorsky, who have successfully localized their production in Poland, were considered for the previous deal.
Previously, Poland announced procuring ten Black Hawk helicopters from Sikorsky, two of which were supposed to be delivered by the end of 2016. The Ministry of Defense did not disclose whether the new tender will have an effect of that decision.
