Should it win the Polish helicopter competition, AgustaWestland plans to manufacture the AW149 in Poland at subsidiary PZL-Swidnik, which should lower unit costs and increase prospects for joint training and maintenance if Hungary follows suit. Like other candidates, the AW149 can be armed with missiles and rockets should Hungary decide to do so.
There is considerable support within the Hungarian armed forces for new Mi-17s, a type that is familiar and well liked by air and ground crews, and by the troops they support. The main prospect is an even more refined version of the Mi-17V-5, similar to this example in service with the Venezuelan Air Force.
