About the NHIndustries NH90

The NHI NH90 is a medium-sized, twin-engine military helicopter developed as part of the NATO Helicopter Program.

Most big helicopters are designed for battlefield operations, and the NHIndustries NH90 is no exception. The NH90 was conceived as a medium-size, support tactical troop transport helicopter to the Chinook CH-47. It can perform multi-role land-based and naval operations reserved for a much larger helicopter without breaking a sweat. Two versions of the NH90 are currently in production; the NH90 NFH (NATO Frigate helicopter) and the NH90 TTH (tactical transport helicopter).

Did you know?

The NH90 is the first helicopter in the world to have a full fly-by-wire flight control system.
