The second of two H145M helicopters acquired by the NATO Support and Procurement Agency on behalf of the Luxembourg Directorate of Defence has been delivered to the country.

The first helicopter, delivered in November, has reached Initial Operational Capability ahead of schedule.

Both helicopters will be based at Luxembourg Airport, and will be initially operated by the police to conduct law enforcement, surveillance, and search and rescue missions. In addition, the configuration of the helicopters will allow the execution of military operations in the future.

The fleet is expected to reach Full Operational Capability by 1 January 2021.
