Is this the same company that sold the Robinson R-22 to the PN?

I wonder what role it will play? will it be armed with RL and equipted with FLIR? CAS for Marines?
EE-T4 Ogum RECCON VEHICLE
 


The EE-T4 Reccon Vehicle is a brilliant vehicle. Quick, light armored and have it armed with a RCWS equipted with a 0.50 cal HMG and 40mm AGL combo i'm ganna be happy with it. Better yet install a 20-25mm RCWS with a co-axial 7.62mm MG to it, Hell… just perfect for the Philippine Army.

Weisel is cute but the EE-T4, makes you go Wow!!! Send a pack of them and they could drive fast and deep into the Philippine Jungle and we could clear the rebels alot sooner. Hopefully the GA or PA R&D looks into this vehicle and craft our own version of the EE-T4, calling our version "Daga" would be fitting.

Ever see a pack of rats converge on unattended meal, a sight of the EE-T4 RP version moving in would give any rebel LBM.

Aerospatiale (AS) 355F2 ....

Interestingly, it's supposedly already in use with the PNP.

Can someone verify this ?

So, is DND not pursuing an integrated/joint helicopter program?

What makes these two helicopters the "future" of the NAG? What do they bring to the mission? What is their mission?

You don't acquire MRVs just to give the NAG more roles.  :jeez:

You don't even need to have an air wing regularly embarked on the MRV. The exception being if it were sent on a foreign deployment. If it stays local, then the  PAF can handle vertical lift.

The PAF and NAG have been training together for shipborne operations for quite a while now:

Does this mean the PN is considering replacing their Bo-105 fleet with Twin Stars in the future?

http://www.naval-technology.com/projects/as555_fennec/as555_fennec7.html  Are navalized Fennec's the future for the Philippine Naval Air Wing? 

The 20mm cannon would be boon for anti-piracy op's.  Skid mounted inflatable pontoons and search radar are major plus. 

This aircraft is simple, an excellent choice for the PN and in active service with four other navies outside the parent nation. 

 

Do not attack crack troops.
