Description: The A129 International 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.

Weapon options for the A129 International include up to 8 TOW2A anti-tank missiles, 81mm rockets, gun pods, Stinger/Mistral air-to-air missiles, and a 20mm 3-barrel gun mounted under the nose. The A129 attack helicopter was successful deployed with the Italian Army in Somalia and Angola.

The A129 International is a derivative of proven A129 Mangusta helicopter with enhanced subsystems and weapon options. The A129 International features a 5-blade main rotor, new T800 engines and a 20mm gun mounted under the nose as well as other refinements. The new helicopter incorporates lessons learned during operational deployments of A129 in the 1990s.

The A129 International has also been developed to meet the requirements of potential export customers. It is being offered actively to Poland for the attack helicopter program.
