NH 90

The NH 90 is a twin engine, tactical transport and multi-role naval helicopter in the 8-9 ton class. The NH 90 design and development contract was awarded by NAHEMA, the NATO agency representing the 4 participating governments of France, Italy, Germany and The Netherlands to NHIndustries the joint venture shared by Agusta, Eurocopter and Fokker.

The NH90 helicopter is being developed in two variants : the Tactical Transport Helicopter (TTH) and the NATO Frigate Helicopter (NFH) to meet the requirements expressed by European Armed Forces. The NH90, derived both in the transport and naval version from a common basic model, has been conceived as a brand new and innovative weapon system, with technical and technological solutions in line with the future expectations of the operators. As for technologies and performance, equal consideration has been given to Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, Testability and Supportability.
