The Hungarian Ministry of Defence has ordered 16 H225M multi-purpose helicopters equipped with the HForce weapon management system.
Together with the helicopters, Airbus will also provide training and support for Hungary’s ‘Zrinyi 2026’ armed forces modernisation programme, the company said in a statement Friday.
The H225Ms selected by Hungary will be equipped with communication capabilities and will be used for transport, combat search and rescue, and special operations missions.
Its avionics and four axis autopilot, range and payload capacities, combined with a large cabin designed to carry up to 28 troops and air-to-ground and air-to-surface armament as well as electronic warfare systems allow the H225M to carry out the demanding missions. The helicopter has an all-weather capability supported by its night vision goggle compatibility.
