Bulgaria to Buy Eurocopter Cougars (Nov. 26)

French aircraft maker Eurocopter has been picked to supply a squadron of Cougar transport helicopters for Bulgarian Air Forces, Defence Minister Nikolay Svinarov said.

The minister signed a protocol to this effect on Wednesday after a 15-member commission preferred the French company to US Sikorsky and Italia's Augusta.

Minister Svinarov would not disclose any parameters in the deal, including its price. “We need to fix a few parameters on the contract financing and an offset agreement,” he told journalists.

The contract is expected to be inked by December.
