      Cannot ascertain the ownership. Probably belongs to some firm which has a contract with the UN.

      What I know for sure is that we have photos of NAF Super Puma helics in Darfur posted elsewhere on this blog.

    Our army needs a dedicated air wing,to overlap the role played by our air force’s mi-24’s,it increases the force potential tactically, just so sad, that it won’t be done.

      Let’s keep hope alive, Oga Tim. The NAF , pursuant to supporting the NA to fulfilling ORBAT 2012, had trained 40 pilots for the new Nigerian Army Aviation Corps (name emphasis, mine) and they also trained flight engineers and technicians for them.

      What remains to be seen is whether they shall be getting armed scout helics or armed utility helics.
