Dept. of National Defense thanks Jordan for the two Bell AH-1 Cobra attack helicopter donation

What a fruitful official visit for President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan.

Good news for the Armed Forces of the Philippines and bad news for all the enemies of the state ( National People’s Army (NPA), Bangsamoro Islamic Freedom Fighters(BIFF), and other terrorist groups).

The Department of National Defense (DND) has thanked the Jordanian government for the donation of two Bell AH-1 Cobra attack helicopters that it gave to the Philippines.

This is such a big boost for the AFP since this will be a new platform to train on for our military pilots, that can help in the insurgency problem of the country.

"The DND thanks the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan for supporting the ongoing capability upgrade of the Armed Forces of the Philippines," Defense spokesperson Arsenio Andolong said .

"The Cobra helicopters, in particular, will help in the AFP's ongoing campaign against terrorism and violent extremism," Andolong said.

The Cobra attack helicopter is a two-blade, single-engine attack helicopter manufactured by Bell Helicopter.

It was developed using the engine, transmission and rotor system of the Bell UH-1 Iroquois.

The Bell Helicopter is the same manufacturer of the Huey’s Filipinos are so accustomed to.

The two Cobra attack helicopters will be delivered July next year.

The DND and the Jordan Armed Forces-Arab Army has signed a memorandum of understanding on defense cooperation (MOU). The MOU was signed during the three-day official and historic visit of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte.
