Poland begins evaluation tests of H225M Caracal

Poland has commenced tests of the H225M Caracal as part of its effort to acquire a total of 50 new rotorcraft for all three branches of its armed forces.
The trials are the final step in the evaluation process ahead of a likely contract signing later this year.
Poland on 21 April announced that it had selected the Caracal for the multirole helicopter requirement ahead of the Sikorsky S-70i Black Hawk/S-70B Seahawk and the AgustaWestland AW149.
Airbus Helicopters provided a H225M destined for the Brazilian navy for the evaluation efforts. That was armed with twin door-mounted machine guns.
