Bell to supply UH-1Y Venom & AH-1Z Viper helos to the Czech Republic

In early September‭, ‬Bell obtained a foreign military deal worth‭ $‬272‭ ‬million from the U.S‭. ‬Navy to supply eight UH-1Y Venom and‭ ‬four AH-1Z Viper helos to the Czech Republic‭. ‬With the 12‭ ‬copters scheduled to be produced for the Czech Air Force until November 2023‭, ‬the U.S‭. ‬manufacturer is on the prowl for further aircraft orders across the region‭.‬
At the MSPO defense-industry show in Kielce‭, ‬company representatives presented their offer for the Polish military which aims to‭ ‬acquire 32‭ ‬multirole helos under the Perkoz program‭, ‬and a further 32‭ ‬combat helos under the Kruk program in the coming years‭. ‬Bell says it is offering the AH-1Z Viper for the Kruk program‭.‬
The Czech Republic is the first European country to buy both platforms together‭. ‬According to Bell‭, ‬these two helos have mixed different functionalities‭.
