Denel’s Rooivalk and Rooivalk Mk2 Attack Helicopter

In late 2015, Denel was actively pushing the idea of not only re-opening Rooivalk development (in terms of upgrading South Africa’s 12 serving units), but to eventually produce a Rooivalk Mk2.

It will also make use of modern munitions such as the Mokopa laser-guided anti-tank missile and A-Darter air-to-air missile.
