Defense website Mena Defense has reported that Tunisia may buy Gökbey helicopters from Türkiye.
Tunisia is currently negotiating for an order of six units. These aircraft will replace the aging UH-1s of the Tunisian Air Force. The Gökbey is a 5 ton medium helicopter which has the capacity to carry 12 people or a 6 ton cargo. It is equipped with two LHTEC CTS800 turbines and can reach a speed of 305 Km/h.
