Panther Helicopter

The Indonesian Navy purchased 11 Airbus 'Panther' helicopters in 2014. As with other Airbus acquisitions, a key part of the deal was that Indonesian-owned company PT Dirgantara would assemble and manufacture some components, such that both Airbus and the Indonesian government profit from the transaction. The Panther helicopters come at a cost of USD $150 million apiece and are fitted with US company Lockheed Martin MK46 torpedos.
