Warsaw (Puls Biznesu) – Bumar, Polish army equipment producer, submitted an offer to the Iraqi government to sell 30 helicopters. Ziad Cattan, deputy Defence Minister in Iraq, did not reveal, which machine was taken into consideration. It is probable that Swidnik, Poland's biggest helicopters’ producer will deliver the order. ‘The offer is worth USD 100 million (EUR 73.8 million)’, Ziad Cattan added. The order may amount even to USD 131 million because 200 ambulances and army kitchen equipment may be bought. ‘We are going to sign this contract today or tomorrow’, the deputy minister said.
The Iraqi army has already got similar equipment from international consortium Ahnam, which won a USD 250 million contract announced by Americans. ‘The equipment is not useful, cars were produced in 1950, the armament is used. We want Poland to be our chief deliverer’, Ziad Cattan declared.
