Indonesia's military has taken delivery of three Bell 412 EP (enhanced performance) utility helicopters following modifications performed at PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI).

The three helicopters will serve in the troop transport role, said PTDI in a statement. Two are going to the Indonesian army and one to the navy.

The three helicopters are part of an order for seven Bell 412s that were delivered to PTDI in a green condition - with no interior fittings - during late 2011 and early 2012.

Bell originally announced an order for five aircraft in early December 2011 and subsequently Indonesia executed an option for two more. Of the seven aircraft, four will go to the army and three to the navy.

The work done by PTDI is believed to include the addition of tactical radios and weather radars.
