M7 set to Receive 5 Top of the Range Helicopters ahead of Besigye's Return from Europe



M7 is truly a happy man and this is after the US army authorized the Bell helicopter company to supply 5 Huey II helicopters to Uganda.

The contract which is worth 89.6 million dollars will see Uganda and Kenya benefit from the top of the range helicopters which are convenient for troop transport into high altitudes, medical evacuation in hot conditions or transport to and from remote bases.

According to information from Bell Helicopter, the Bell Huey II’s weight load lift of 4,873 pounds in hot conditions was improved by combining Bell 212 dynamic components with the Honeywell T53-L-703 engine. It has an endurance of 2.6 hours and 246 miles, and a maximum cruise speed of 106 knots per hour with the maximum load.

This decision was made in the wake where Kizza Besigye was in the US to discuss matters of leadership and democracy in Africa. He recently just postponed his return after the government vowed to disrupt any celebrations to welcome him.
