Posted on August 10, 2010 by worldef

NH Industries has started to build the first NH 90 TTH (Tactical Transport Helicopter) medium tactical transport helicopter for the Portuguese Army (Exército Português) at AgustaWestland plant in Vergiate (Italy).
The Portuguese Army UALE (Unidade de Aviação Ligeira do Exército) light aviation unit will receive a total of 10 helicopters from 2012. According the new schedule, the last unit will be delivered in 2017. The programme conducted by the NAHEMA (NATO Helicopter Management Agency) agency representing France, Germany, Italy, The Netherlands and Portugal first planned the delivery of the Portuguese helicopter from 2008 to 2012 but due to delays with the development of the helicopter type, the schedule has been postponed to the 2012-2014 timeframe. The last schedule covers deliveries to be held from 2012 to 2017.
