Luxembourg military orders two H145Ms

The Government of the Grand-Duchy of Luxembourg has ordered two H145M multipurpose helicopters for defence and security missions.

Together with the helicopters, Airbus will also provide a training and support package to its customer.

The helicopters will be delivered before the end of 2019 and will enter into service beginning of 2020.

With a maximum take-off weight of 3.7 tonnes, the H145M can be used for a wide range of tasks, including troop and passenger transport, surveillance, air rescue, reconnaissance and medical evacuation.

The helicopters will be equipped with a hoist, a fast roping system, a high-performance camera, a search light, advanced communication systems and will have provisions to install a light armour protection kit.

The latest technologies to allow the helicopter to operate in adverse weather conditions and during nighttime are incorporated in the design. The helicopters will be operated and serviced at Luxembourg Findel Airport.
