The A 129 Mangusta (“Mongoose”) was developed as a variant of the A109 series of helicopters. The newly design aircraft proved to be larger and so different than its predecessor that the system was designated as the A129 and considered an entirely new helicopter. Later classified as a medium attack helicopter with an armed reconnaissance role, the A129 became the principle attack helicopter for Italian armed forces.
