H145M completes first flight with HForce weapon system

The H145M performed its first flight with a complete HForce weapon system in Donauwörth, Germany, at the end of August. Thanks to this modular weapon system designed by Airbus, the H145M can be equipped with all kinds of guided and ballistic armaments such as missiles and laser-guided rockets, machine guns and rockets. The qualification of HForce for use on the H145M is planned for 2018.

“The next steps prior to qualification include a firing campaign, testing the whole fire mission spectrum through guns, cannons and rockets in Hungary, as well as tests on the laser-guided rockets in Sweden before the end of the year,” said Jean-Luc André, HForce program manager, Airbus Helicopters.

“As the launch customer for the H145M with the HForce weapon system, the Republic of Serbia has ordered nine H145M aircraft, including four attack helicopters equipped with HForce.”

HForce is a comprehensive, modular and cost-efficient weapon system that can be used on any military version of Airbus’s civil helicopter range (H125M, H145M and H225M). The flexible weapon management system enables armies around the world to complement their fleets with specialized versions of light attack helicopters.

The H145M is the military version of the twin-engine H145 civil helicopter that was first delivered in 2014.
