Airbus Helicopters Region South East Asia & Pacific head Philippe Monteux said: "By acquiring both the EC645 T2 and EC725, Thailand will be operating two of the most capable helicopters in their categories, delivering high levels of mission flexibility with their modern avionics and rugged airframes."
