The 20th and final NH90 TTH helicopter has been delivered to the Finnish Armed Forces during a ceremony in Finland.
This helicopter was assembled in Halli by Patria, an Airbus Helicopters local licensee.
This helicopter, well suited to the cold weather in Finland, thanks to its de- icing system and its high performance sensors, is the backbone of the Finnish Defense forces.
From now on, the initial batches of the NH90s will be retrofitted to the final operational standard.
The NH90 is the optimal choice for modern operations thanks to its large full composite airframe, its excellent power to weight ratio; and its wide range of role equipment. It features a redundant Fly-by-Wire flight control system for reduced Pilot’s workload and enhanced flight characteristics.
The NH90 is proposed in two main variants, one dedicated to naval operations, the NH90NFH (Nato Frigate Helicopter) and a Tactical Transport Variant for land based operations. As of today, 244 helicopters have been delivered in Naval and Tactical transport variants. They are in service in Germany, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greece, Oman, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand.
