R.Yanez, A.Rodriguez - Spain's AB212 Upgrade /Military/
The replacement of obsolete components and the installation of new ones will reduce the helicopter’s weight, an important factor given that it is retaining its current engine.
Representatives from the Spanish Navy, INAER and SENER gathered in front of the upgraded AB212’s first flight on December 17,2013.
Work on installing mission and special equipment to the first upgraded AB212 is currently under way.
