Mexico to order Bell 412s

17th March 2009 - 16:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The United States Congress has been notified of a possible Foreign Military Sale of Bell 412EP helicopters to Mexico.

The contract worth $93 million also includes spare and repair parts, support equipment, ferry services, publications and technical data, personnel training and training equipment, contractor engineering and technical support services, and other related elements of logistics support.

This proposed sale will contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve Mexico’s fight against criminal organizations, drugs, and gang activities. This proposed sale directly supports the Mexican government and serves the interests of the Mexican people and the United States.

The proposed sale of the helicopters will increase the Mexican Air Force’s air capabilities to support its interdiction activities, rapid response of law enforcement in Mexico, and support for the civilian population in natural disasters.
