Nigeria Gets 6 New Attack Helicopters
The Buhari-led administration of the federal government of Nigeria has reportedly procured six attack helicopters from Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI).

According to Defense News, Temel Kotil, general manager of TAI, said the company will deliver a batch of six T129 attack helicopters.
In the meantime, Mr Kotil did not mention the exact date the helicopters will be delivered to Nigeria.
