TAI's T129 ATAK Multirole Combat Helicopter will be on display at the Latin American Aero & Defence (LAAD) expo on April 2-5 in Rio de Janeiro, it said in a statement.

Ahead of the expo, the ATAK chopper will demonstrate its capabilities and performance on March 26 and March 28 in two different Brazilian cities, Taubate and Brasilia.

The T129 ATAK is a next-generation, tandem and two-seat, twin engine helicopter, specifically designed for attack and reconnaissance.
