Airbus’ two-tonne H125M (formerly the AS550 C3e Fennec) responds to military requirements for a cost-effective armed platform with a very small footprint and excellent manoeuvrability.

Best in class

As the most capable armed scout helicopter in its category, the single-engine H125M combines power, discretion and targeted firepower.

A versatile airborne platform

The H125M is tailored for ISTAR and attack missions. It relies on the qualities of power, simplicity, firing stability and stealth to carry out a diverse range of demanding missions.

The H125M can be equipped with Airbus’ HForce weapons system – a comprehensive, modular and cost-efficient weapon system that can be used on any military version of Airbus’ civil helicopter range (H125M, H145M and H225M). 

Able to fly discreetly in the battlefield with a small silhouette, the H125M has a reduced radar signature through the use of composite materials and infrared-reflective paint.

This helicopter benefits from the excellent handling characteristics and easy-to-fly qualities that are inherent in Airbus’ single-engine Ecureuil family – which holds the world altitude record (landing on Mount Everest at 8,848 metres), and is fully operational in high and hot environments.

Built for performance

Fitted with Safran’s powerful Arriel 2D engine with a dual-channel full authority digital engine control (FADEC) system, the H125M is well-suited to perform combat flights.

In the cockpit, Airbus’ vehicle and engine multifunction display (VEMD®) provides accurate information on the aircraft’s condition and performance, dramatically reducing crew workload.
