So it looks like Italy's Leonardo has been quietly developing the successor to the AW129, designated AW249, as the original helos are to be phased out by 2025.
Looks like an uparmed version of the ATAK but will be powered by twin GE700/AVIO CT7-8E6 engines, similar to ones that power the AH-1Zs (2,500 shp each). Max TOW in the 7,500 - 8,000kg range.
With the close cooperation with the Italians already, it could be another option in the hat to make up the heavy component that was once going to be AH-1Z, or even T129s replacement if that never pans out.

Pakistan can Get Z-10ME with Russian or Ukrainian engines...
Chinese will have to allow the integration, then it will take time for integration, test and evaluation. At the end of the day who will foot the bill for it ( testing, integration ) ?
