  • The Occoronian government is interested to buy three AugustaWestland AW101 (Merlin) helicopters. They will be used for search and rescue operations on sea and land, and not for military operations. Therefore, they don't have to be equipped with weaponry.

    The government is now looking for more information about this type of helicopter, concerning the speed limit, endurance, range and production and maintenance costs of course.

  • The Merlin information has been updated, and the rest of our products will continue to be updated throughout the week.

    We welcome the order of the Government of Occoron, and will take special care in its requests. We do, however, recommend that the aircraft maintain at least a basic set of weaponry in the event that the search and rescue operation ends up a hostile situation.

  • We appreciate your recommendation, and we agree to have a very very basic set of weaponry.

    The government of the Democratic Republic of Occoron hereby formally orders three AugustaWestland AW101 (Merlin) helicopters.

    We would like to hear when these helicopters will be ready?

  • You should hear from BAE in about 3 weeks regarding the Merlin helicopters ordered.

  • We expect to hear more of BAE Systems in about three weeks.

  • BAE is proud to tell the Government of Occoron that its order will be ready on January 31, ahead of scheduled finish date of February 4.

  • We are very happy with that our order will be ready sooner.
