Airbus Helicopters has used Eurosatory to highlight its militarised H160 platform which is currently undergoing de-risking studies.

The aircraft is being developed for the French military’s Joint Light Helicopter (HIL) requirements to replace various fleets of aircraft including the SA 341/342 Gazelle, Alouette III, AS 365 Dauphin SP and AS 555 Fennec.

Speaking to Shephard Jean-Eric Vague, operational marketing at Airbus Helicopters, said that the differences between the H160M compared with the civil version include: modified landing gear for ship landing; the addition of a naval radar; electronic support measures and a tactical display for the operators.
