“The first out of three purchased Bell 412 EP helicopters, of the Army of Montenegro, landed today at the Military Airport in Podgorica.

The new aircraft arrived accompanied by our helicopters type Gazelle. The remaining two helicopters, with even more powerful performances, labeled ‘412 EPI,’ will arrive later this year.

Defense Minister Predrag Boskovic said that it was a multi-purpose helicopter, from which, according to him, all citizens of Montenegro will benefit.

‘We are fulfilling what we have promised. Purchase of three helicopters, which we have negotiated with the Canadian Government and the Bell, significantly enhances the capabilities and capacities of not only the Aviation and Army of Montenegro, but also the entire state, because new helicopters will not serve only for military but for civilian purposes also,’ Defense Minister Predrag Boskovic said.” (RTCG)
