Poland begins evaluation tests of H225M Caracal
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.
