Description: The A129 Mangusta is an attack helicopter developed to meet the requirements of the Italian Army by the Agusta company. It performs anti-tank, fire support, escort, and scout missions with air-to-air engagement capability. Advanced electro-optic sensors have been integrated in the A129 to achieve all-weather, day/night operation capability.
