Airbus Helicopters announced today that it has won a full-service contract for the new H145M rotorcraft from the German Air Force this year.

This seven-year co-operative support and services agreement will ensure optimal availability, reliability and readiness for the German Air Force’s fleet of 15 H145M helicopters, which are to be used primarily in missions with the country’s Special Forces Command.

Airbus Helicopters´ responsibility includes the management and implementation of maintenance and repair activities, material supply and airworthiness.

The twin-engine multi-role H145M is based on Airbus Helicopters’ enhanced H145 civilian and parapublic rotorcraft (previously designated the EC145 T2).

However, the helicopter in its military version is suited to various range of military operations, including transportation, reconnaissance, search and rescue, fire support and evacuations of wounded personnel.

With a maximum take-off weight of 3.7 metric tons, the H145M can be outfitted with mission equipment that includes a pintle-mounted door gun and the ability to carry weapons on external stores; electro optical/infrared sensors with targeting capability; as well as military avionics for communications, navigation and flight management.
