Towards the end of 1999, the South African Government signed
contracts totalling US$4,8 billion (R30 billion in 1999 rands) to modernise its

utility helicopters, lead-in fighter trainers and advanced light fighter
aircraft. The purpose of this Virtual Press Office (VPO) is to follow the thread
of certain questions being raised and investigations being undertaken into this
controversial arms deal.
