Well they can't have the T-129 as nobody has modelled it yet.

Ha, and the NBAI Apache has not been converted to P3D yet! The logistics of supporting two completely different types of airframes always surprises me, especially ones that have similar battlefield missions.

Like a lot of air forces it comes down to cost and the pair will probably work in tandem, with the dearer more capable Apaches taking charge in the field of operations guiding the cheaper T-129s. The concept is the hi-lo mix.

Since a few years morocco is showing interest to AH64 Appache.

The T129 was new to me.

According to wikipedia only Pakistan is using T129 out of Turkey

The total order value including support and training ect should be around 1.5 billion $.
