Turkey inducts T129 EDH-standard attack hepters

The Ankara, Turkey has inducted the first nine Turkish Aerospace Industries T129 attack helicopters. The deliveries of the rotorcraft began in April 2012. T129 attack helicopters have been derived from the AgustaWestland AW129 by TAI and Aselsan under Turkey's ATAK requirement. The EDH model is designed to cover an urgent operational need to replace some of the Turkish army's Bell AH-1 Cobras, but lacks the anti-tank missiles to be carried by the eventual T129B variant.
