Three Finmeccanica companies have signed agreements with the Russian defense export agency Rosoboronexport to offer maritime patrol aircraft (MPA) versions of Russian types. Selex Galileo would provide its ATOS mission management system, while radio specialist Selex Elsag would provide advanced CNI (communications, navigation, identification) equipment.

The armament system would include lightweight torpedoes from WASS. No mention was made of any particular Russian type, and candidates could include both new-build and converted aircraft.
