The H215M is the most capable armed helicopter in its class, tailored for a range of missions with excellent capability in high and hot environments.

Troop transport and MEDEVAC

The H215M can carry a crew of two or three, plus up to 24 troops for transport missions, and can accommodate six patients on stretchers – plus 10 other passengers – on medical evacuation flights.

The affordable SAR and combat SAR solution

The H215M offers exceptional range and endurance of over 600 NM or six hours – which is extended by hover in-flight refuelling (HIFR).

It can be operated in all weather (including in icing conditions) and offers high mission efficiency thanks to the quick start-up procedure (approximately five minutes) and speed. The H215M’s autopilot procures SAR mode and automatic hover.

A dual-side window 7.62 mm gun can be incorporated on the H215M, along with fast roping or rappelling kits and unique personnel extraction devices (cluster/grappe or basket).


Special operations and fire support

Qualified armament for H215M firing missions include a dual-side window 7.62 mm gun, side-door-mounted 20 mm gun, 20 mm gun pod of 180 rounds, 19 2.75-inch rocket launchers, and side-mounted rapid-fire machine guns.

The helicopter also operates with fast roping or rappelling kits and cluster/grappe or basket personnel extraction devices.
