Saturday, July 25th, 2015. Aaron Humes Reporting: The Government of Belize has been trying to acquire helicopters for the Belize Defence Force – but a planned deal to buy used ones in Miami fell through.
They have now turned to Taiwan, and the Acting Deputy Commander of the Belize Defence Force, Lieutenant Colonel Luis Lorenzo, updated the press:
“Last week we had a delegation from the Taiwanese Government and the Taiwanese army and they did some reconnaissance and I can assure without going into much detail, come end of this year, we will see some physical evidence of the presence of these (two) helicopters.”
The BDF’s mobility and timeliness to respond across difficult terrain will be greatly enhanced by helicopter use.
