Tokyo, June 21, 2022 – Subaru Corporation is pleased to announce that we were awarded a contract of SUBARU BELL 412EPX, from Japan Coast Guard.

It is expected to be used for ensuring security at sea, search and rescue, responding maritime disasters, and transportation of many loads.

SUBARU BELL 412EPX has commonalities with BELL 412EP, which Japan Coast Guard currently possesses. Therefore, it enables smooth introduction and transition by utilizing the existing resources. In addition to that, SUBARU BELL 412EPX provides better operational capability and efficiency with improved performance such as extended hover ceiling and increased useful load.
