Major Boost in Defense Capability As NAF is Set to Induct Newly Acquired T-129 ATAK Helicopters


As a major boost to Nigeria’s national defense capability, the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) is set to induct its newly acquired T-129 ATAK helicopters and King Air 360i aircraft on 6 February 2024 at the NAF Base, Makurdi, Benue State. 

According to Director of Public Relations and Information, Air Vice Marshal Edward Gabkwet the induction ceremony will be performed by the Special Guest of Honour, the President and Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Ahmed Tinubu GCFR, to be represented by the Vice President, Senator Kashim Shettima, GCON. 

The event no doubt signifies a major boost to Nigeria’s national defense capability under the current dispensation. 

Specifically, the new platforms would enhance NAF's firepower as it jointly confronts the various security challenges in the country, alongside sister services and other security agencies.
