    The tender for the purchase of five (5) unmanned helicopters for the needs of the Hellenic Navy has been completed, according to an exclusive report by Star TV. 

    Following the Hellenic Army and Air Force, the Hellenic Navy will in turn acquire unmanned equipment. These are five (5) small unmanned helicopters worth approximately 2,000,000 euros. 

    According to reporter Costas Symeonidis, the Hellenic Navy will have procured the unmanned helicopters by the end of the year from a multinational company specializing in such aircraft.
