Selected by armed forces around the world, the Tiger has been built for reconnaissance, ground support and attack, as well as for air-to-air defence.

Ground attack

Built for ground attack missions, the Tiger HAD’s turreted gun is one of the most accurate and lethal weapons of its type, thanks to the efficient fire control system. The gun is linked to both the roof- and the helmet-mounted sights, enabling quick and easy target acquisition.

Total ammunition capacity is 450 rounds, with a firing rate of 750 rounds per minute.

68-mm or 70-mm unguided rockets can be swapped in place of the other weapon types without changes to the helicopter’s fixed parts. Capacity is up to 68 for the 68-mm rockets, and 52 for the 70-mm rockets. Growth potential exists for laser-guided rockets.

The Hellfire laser-guided and Spike ER electro-optical or fiber optics-guided air-to-ground missiles are qualified on the Tiger HAD, with both capable of 8,000 metre ranges in self-designation mode.

Air-to-air

Four “fire and forget” Mistral air-to-air missiles and the Nexter 30M781 30-mm turreted gun give the Tiger HAD a powerful air-to-air combat capability.

A total of four Mistral missiles are accommodated on outer launchers, with a range of up to 6,000 metres.
