Description: The Agusta Aw109 LUH (light Utility Helcopter) is the last AW109 military helicopter ever produced. It is equipped with modern technology and greatly improved armament compared to previous versions. It is the only military version currently in production. But let us talk about the history of the A109: The Agusta A109 was developed in the 1960s as a civil helicopter, but due to some problems with the engines, the helicopter did not fly for the first time until 1969. In 1975, Agusta produced the first armed version of the A109, the A109 AT. The second military version was the CM, used by the Italian Army in a total of 24 units (in versions EOA1 and EOA2) and by the Belgian Army (in version BA ). In the 90" years, the last military version of the 109, the LUH, was developed. The first one was built in 1996 and flew in the same year. 6 helicopters were produced and were owned by Agusta. They were used for testing and marketing purposes and were flown by Italian pilots. Malaysia was the second customer to purchase this helicopter from Agusta in 2005. The helicopter was delivered in a total of 11 units between 2005 and 2006. In Malaysian service, the helicopter is designated as A109 LOH (light observation helicopter). The helicopter is currently in service with the Malaysian Army. Other customers have included South Africa, Nigeria, New Zealand, Algeria, Sweden and others. The helicopter is equipped with two Turbomeca Arrius 2K2 engines, which give it a top speed of 311 km/h and a maximum trusth of 590 kW each. Compared to its predecessor, it is equipped with flares, new avionics and systems (such as FLIR) and improved flight characteristics. It can use more powerful weapons such as better air-to-ground missiles (Hellfire) and air-to-air missiles (Aim 92 Stinger and Mistral).

Why it should be in the game: Since this heli Is a lot more advanced compared to the alredy in game A109 EOA2 It can easily go in the premium line since others heli like A129 Internetional and T129 were removed. While this One can be a premium, the Normal Italian LUH can be in the main line
