Airbus Helicopters will display its mission-ready military rotorcraft lineup at Eurosatory 2014 defense exposition near Paris, France, including one of its newest military helicopters, the twin-engine EC645 T2. Also shown at Eurosatory 2014 will be Airbus Helicopters’ single-engine high-performance AS550 C3e Fennec, tailored for scout, armed reconnaissance and light utility missions.
The French Army will display one of its NH90s – the multi-role helicopter deployed by this military service and by allied forces in Afghanistan, and used for the French Navy’s rescues of more than 120 persons; along with the presence of Tiger attack helicopter, which has been combat-proven while serving in Afghanistan, Libya and Mali.
Completing the company’s presence at Eurosatory – its first in the Airbus Helicopters identity following the rebranding from Eurocopter – are scale models of the EC725 Caracal, endorsed through combat deployments with French forces in Afghanistan along with the support of France’s role in NATO-led operations during the Libyan military campaign and French Special Forces missions in Mali; as well as the military Panther version of the well-known Dauphin family.
