It's an impressive set up (in size, dedication and dare I say cost) that's for sure. It said on the news that these were bigger aircraft then the previous bunch. All journalistic integrity aside, is that actually the case? Is a 139 not a 139?

The AW139 went from 6400kg to 6800kg, I suspect these are the latest model with a MAUW of 7000kg.
