Taken from the Media Release PARLSEC 502/01 issued on Friday 21st December 2001 by The Hon. Fran Bailey, MP,
"As part of the Australian industry involvement initiative, Eurocopter will also establish a production line to produce EC120 civilian helicopters in Australia. The production line will produce between 30-50 helicopters per year for the Australian, New Zealand and Asian markets and have an annual turnover of about $50 million."
"Some of the components produced in Australia will be exported, giving Australia entry to the worldwide supply chain for Eurocopter."
Originally posted by FreeMasonThe Apache can survive a drop from 10,000 feet if it could get up that high...the reason the helicopters suvive the falls is because when you are "crashing" you release the rotors so that they spin freely...like a "helicopter" seed when you drop it it spins.

The Australian government has recently agreed to purchase 24 Eurocopter Tiger scout/attack helicopters. The main competition was from the Apache D Longbow.
So I was wondering what other people think of this decision and why ?
Check out this link from the ADF for more information on the decision.
