    TAI/AgustaWestland T129 ATAK | Information Pool













    The T129 multirole attack helicopter is being developed jointly by AgustaWestland and Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) for the Turkish Land Forces Command (TLF) under the attack and tactical reconnaissance helicopter (ATAK) programme. The helicopter is based on the AW129 and its predecessor the A129 Mangusta.
    In March 2007, the Turkish Armed Forces placed a $3bn contract with AgustaWestland for 51, plus 41 optional, A129 Mangusta helicopters to be assembled as the T-129 by TAI, the prime contractor for the ATAK programme.
    "The helicopter is based on the AW129 and its predecessor the A129 Mangusta."
    Aselsan supplies avionics and mission equipment, while AgustaWestland acts as a subcontractor to TAI. The helicopters will be delivered to Turkey in two different configurations: TUC-1 and TUC-2.
    T129 attack helciopter development

    The development of the T129 commenced in July 2008. The system requirements review (SRR) and preliminary design review (PDR) were completed in 2009, and the maiden flight of the T-129 P1 prototype took place on 28 September 2009. On 19 March 2010, the prototype crashed during high-altitude hover tests near Verbania in northern Italy due to loss of power in its tail rotor. The first flight of the first Turkish prototype helicopter was completed at TAI's facilities in Ankara on 17 August 2011.
    In November 2010, Turkey placed a €150m contract with AgustaWestland for nine T129 attack helicopters, bringing the total number of orders to 60.
    Azerbaijan, Jordan, Malaysia, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates have all expressed interest in the T-129 helicopter.
    T129 design features

    The T129 features an aluminium alloy frame fitted to a five-bladed main rotor, a two-bladed tail rotor and wheeled landing gear.
    Designed to operate in hot conditions, the T129 can be deployed in a wide range of operations including attack, reconnaissance and deterrent missions.
    Stealth features and significant weapon systems allow the T129 to operate in complex battlefield environments and confined areas, and ballistic tolerance has been increased for high survivability. Capable of operating in day and night conditions, the helicopter is equipped with a laser rangefinder / designator, night vision (helmet-mounted display system) and an emergency locator transmitter (ELT).
    Cockpit of the Turkish military helicopter

    The digital cockpit of the T129 incorporates two colour multifunctional displays (MFD), keyboard display unit, Avionic Central Control Computer-ACCC (Dual) and a four-axis automatic flight control system (AFCS). It will accommodate two crew members.
    The cockpit will also integrate an aircraft and mission management system (AMMS), weapon control units (WCU), flight data recorder (FDR), integrated INS/GPS (Dual)/Doppler navigation and an air vehicle monitoring system.
    Armaments and weaponry on the T129 attack helicopter

    The helicopter will have four hardpoints to carry a weaponry payload of 1,200kg. Its stub wing pylons can accommodate anti-tank guided missiles (ATGM), air-to-air missiles (ATAM), 70mm (2.75in) rockets and 70mm (2.75in) guided rockets.
    A 20mm turreted three-barrel gun system will be fitted on a nose turret. Optional armament includes 12.7mm gun pods.
    Countermeasure technology

    The defensive aids suite fitted on the T129 will include active and passive countermeasures systems such as the countermeasure dispensing system (CMDS), a missile warning system, laser warning system, radio frequency jammer, radar warning receiver and infrared countermeasures.
    T129 engines

    The T129 is powered by two LHTEC T800-4A turboshaft engines. Each engine can develop a power output of 1,014kW.
    "The T129 multirole attack helicopter is being developed jointly by AgustaWestland and Turkish Aerospace Industries."
    The T800-4A is an export variant of the CTS800 engine. It has a length of 0.85m, a diameter of 0.56m and weighs about 154kg.
    The engines are equipped with the FADEC (full authority digital engine control) system.
    FADEC reduces the workload of the pilot by controlling all aspects of the aircraft's engine performance.
    The T129 has a maximum cruise speed of 269km/h. The normal and ferry ranges of the helicopter are 561km and 1,000km respectively, and it can climb at a rate of 14m/s.
    The service ceiling is 6,096m, maximum endurance is three hours and the maximum take-off weight of the aircraft is 5,000kg.

    T129 ATAK ADVANCED ATTACK AND TACTICAL RECONNAISSANCE HELICOPTER

    T129 ATAK is a new generation, tandem two-seat, twin engine helicopter specifically designed for attack and reconnaissance purposes. T129 ATAK, developed from the combat proven AgustaWestland A129CBT, incorporates totally new system philosophy with new engines (LHTEC CTS 800-4A), new avionics, visionics and weapons, modified airframe, uprated drive train and new tail rotor.
    The T129 ATAK is the helicopter selected in 2007 by the Government of Turkey for the Turkish Land Forces; development and production will be assured by the "ATAK Team", a Joint Partnership of Turkish Aerospace Industries, Inc. (TAI) and AgustaWestland. The first TAI-manufactured helicopter was delivered to Turkish Land Forces by the end of April 2014.
    T129 ATAK has been optimized to meet and exceed the "high and hot" performance requirements for harsh geographical and environmental conditions while providing the following key characteristics;

    • Day & night all environment capability; effective, precise weapon systems that provide combat superiority while low visual, aural, radar and IR signatures, high level of crashworthiness and ballistic tolerance provide high battlefield survivability.
    • Excellent situational awareness through good visibility arcs and fully integrated mission and communication systems.
    • Eased crew workloads through superior performance, agility and platform stability and handling qualities.
    • Reduced Preparation Time augmented by off-board Mission Planning System and reduced take-off time.
    • Low operating cost through effective design and on-condition maintenance.

    T129 ATAK could be provided with MIZRAK ATGMs, and CIRIT (70 mm. Guided Rockets) designed for Turkish Armed Forces. Further armament options include Hellfire and Spike ATGMs, Stinger A/A missiles. A new FLIR system increases image quality and range performance with real-time image processing and multiple target tracking with high resolution thermal camera, laser rangefinder, designator and spot tracker. The relatively small radar cross section and state of the art systems counter measure systems help to provide high battlefield survivability, low visual, aural, radar and IR signatures.

    T129




    The T129 is a formidable, new, highly powerful and capable all-weather day and night multi-role attack helicopter which is being developed in cooperation by AgustaWestland, Aselsan and TAI (Turkish Aerospace Industries) for Turkey and other export markets. It is based upon the AW129 and its predecessor, the battle-proven A129 Mangusta platform. 1200kg Weapon payload, excellent performance for ‘hot and high’ conditions, 300nm range and endurance of up to 3 hours are enabled by state-of-the-art LHTEC-T800 engines, making the T129 a critical multi-role resource for attack, reconnaissance and deterrent operations. Low signature and agility ensure maximum stealth, and a significant weapons payload enable the T129 to operate in the most hostile of battlefield environments as well as in confined areas typical of current military scenarios. Latest technology features and Integrated Aircraft Survivability Equipment, delivers vital mission capabilities and survivability tools. The Integrated mission equipment package includes an advanced Targeting and Sight System (FLIR, CCTV, laser designator), Helmet Mounted Sight and Display, secure communication, precise navigation equipment and Data Link. High survivability enhanced by ballistic tolerance and crashworthiness is a fundamental design feature. The T129 benefits from the high field supportability necessary for an aircraft needing to operate in remote areas with the minimum logistical support.
