RMAF EC-725: Air Force Needs 27 Super Cougars

The RMAF Chief of Staff said that 12 EC-725 Super Cougar which the RMAF has started to receive since last month until 2014 are not enough to fully replace the veteran S-61A-4 Nuri in which 28 are still in service out of 40 inducted into service since 1968. The Air Force has projected that it needs 27 EC-725 to fully replace 28 Nuri.

As an interim measure, the RMAF will upgrade 15 Nuri until enough allocation could be made available to procure the additional EC-725.
