French Panther, Tiger Upgrades Near
The French military is getting ready to field improvements to a number of its helicopters as it tries to introduce new standards of equipment for its navy, army and air force.
One of the most extensive efforts is the Eurocopter Panther Mk.2, a major upgrade of the navy’s Panther. A prototype of the new version began flight trials last November with operational trials slated for next year. Panthers are heavily used in anti-narcotics and counter-piracy operations.
