23 Airbus H145 Helicopters for Saudi Arabia

Definitely a good year for Airbus helicopters !

France is set to supply 23 H145 multipurpose Airbus helicopters for border patrols for 500 million euros (560 million dollars) to Saudi Arabia.


Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Defense Minister Prince Mohammed Bin Salman met with French officials on Wednesday.


The contract is part of the 12 billion euro worth of deals struck between Paris and Riyadh.

(...)


Fabius also announced that Saudi Arabia have agreed on a commitment to acquire about 30 patrol boats built by DCNS, partly owned by Thales for its navy.

I am waiting for confirmation of the deal for 24 H-225M with Kuwait; it's been announced and then, as often with other recent announcement from Kuwait (F-18s....) it all went very quiet.....

The military M variant – presented at Paris on the Airbus Group static display – has hit a rich vein of form recently having been selected by Poland for a 50-unit order and with Kuwait in discussions for a purchase of 24 rotorcraft.
