Airbus Helicopters has confirmed that it has offered its H145M military helicopter in response to the Australian government’s request for information for a four-tonne class, multi-role helicopter for special operations forces, the company announced on 19 March.

The offering also includes the provision of training, maintenance, logistics and engineering activities.

The Airbus H145M helicopter is the military version of the H145 and is based on a commercial off-the-shelf platform with military-specific modifications.

The aircraft features Airbus' Helionix cockpit which reduces pilot workload and allows greater situational awareness.

The helicopter can be used to support missions including aerial assault, aerial fire support, attack, ISTAR, CASEVAC and general utility tasks.
