Poland likely to scrap $3 billion Airbus helicopter deal
Poland's previous government agreed a provisional deal with Airbus for 50 EC-725 Caracal multi-purpose helicopters, turning down offers from Sikorsky and AgustaWestland.
"I can't say that the final assessment of the offset negotiations will be negative, but considering how big the differences are, it is very likely that an agreement will not be reached," Bartosz Kownacki told the Rzeczpospolita daily.
"We are not allergic to the French, but to not utilizing the capacity of the Polish industry. We'd have to get really as much as possible from the French side to make this contract profitable for us," Kownacki said. ■
