Portuguese Pumas back to bussiness?

Withrawn from active duty twice (last time, this year), looks like the Portuguese Air Force Pumas are again on the first line to return, for the second time, to active duty.
This time with the fire fighting and Civil Protection missions.

The Air Force just published a report stating that the Kamov's currently beeing used by EMA (Public Compay that operates the civilian helicopters that operate to the Civil Protection) are of expensive maintenance rather than having these helicopters beeing operated by PoAF, it would be better to sell them and return the Pumas back to operation....

Let's see how it will turn....
