Fox2 reports that Turkey may receive more AH-1W Super Cobra attack helicopters. Turkey has had a long standing request with the United States for more helicopters of this type. The American Ambassador to Turkey, James F. Jeffrey announced that the Turkish request will now be granted. It is unclear how many helicopters this will involve but it is assumed that the first batch will consist of 5 helicopters.
Turkey routinely uses these helicopters in the suppression of PKK forces in the south east of the country.
