The Royal Bahraini Air Force has confirmed long-rumoured plans to purchase 12 AH-1Z attack helicopters from Bell. The estimated $912m Foreign Military Sales deal will see the helicopters delivered from mid-2022.

It’s the second export deal for the AH-1Z following on from Pakistan. Bahrain says it will also retain its older AH-1s, as it expands its overall fleet.
