ADAS 2016: Royal Thai Navy welcomes new H145Ms

19th September 2016 - 12:00 GMT | by Sompong Nondhasa in Bangkok


Five H145M light utility helicopters arrived at the Royal Thai Navy’s (RTN) U-Tapao air base on 8 September. They will enter service in November to supplement and eventually replace six Bell 212 helicopters that have been in service since 1978.

Apart from transportation tasks, the H145Ms will also be used in the future as light attack platforms to support Thai marines and riverine operations.

Airbus Helicopters noted that the RTN is the first foreign customer for the H145M.

Five H145Ms painted in a woodland camouflage scheme will enter service in 202nd Squadron, Wing 2 of the RTN’s Air Division.
