The H145M is the latest four-tonne-class twin-engine military helicopter in Airbus’ product range, providing a multitude of deployment possibilities with its power, range, endurance and payload capability.
The H145M can be fitted with the HForce weapon system designed by Airbus, which integrates an electro-optical system (EOS) and helmet-mounted sight display (HMSD) for improved targeting, and a wide selection of armaments, ranging from ballistic to guided ammunition, providing outstanding flexibility for attack missions.
With its open system architecture, the HForce incremental weapon system can accommodate a wide choice of ballistic and guided weapon configurations – from 12- and 7-tube rocket- and guided-rocket launchers, to a 20-mm cannon pod and 12.7-mm machine gun pod.
Fitted with two Turbomeca Arriel 2E engines – each managed by a dual-channel full authority digital engine control (FADEC) – the H145M retains excellent performance throughout the flight envelope, particularly when operating at altitudes of 6,000 ft. and in 95 deg. F. environments – known as “6K/95 high and hot” conditions.
Airbus’ state-of-the-art glass cockpit and Helionix® avionics suite – coupled with a highly capable 4-axis digital autopilot system – ensure the H145M accomplishes the job, no matter how demanding the mission.
