Jordan plans to purchase AH-6i light attack and reconnaissance helicopters for the Royal Jordanian Air Force (RJAF) from Boeing to enhance border security.
RJAF commander Major General Malek Habashneh said the helicopters would provide the air force with greater capabilities at a low operating cost, according to AFP.
It will feature flexible mission configuration, an integrated digital cockpit, combat-proven design, the highest payload in its class, and an integrated and qualified weapons system.
It will also be equipped with a communications package to enable connectivity with other aircraft and ground stations.
Habashneh said the number of AH-6i to be purchased would be finalised during the signing of the contract, which has had no specific timeline to date.
It is expected that the RJAF will replace its US-made Cobra helicopters with the improved AH-6i helicopters.
