Thailand could get AH-6i helicopters via a FMS.
The U.S. Department of State has approved the sale of combat and reconnaissance helicopters AH-6i. This foreign military sale is about 8 helicopters, 50 missiles Hellfire as well as related equipments and services. The FMS, currently valued $400 million, still has to be approved by the Congress.
These AH-6i helicopters will enable the Royal Thai Army to strengthen its attack and air-to-ground capability. They will conduct homeland security missions and support special forces, ground troops and coast guards. The purchase of these aircraft is part of a modernization effort. The AH-6i aircraft will thus replace the seven AH-1F Cobra helicopters currently into service.
