Hungarian Defence Forces have taken delivery of two Airbus H145M helicopters, which are the first of 20 such aircraft ordered by military force.

The H145Ms of the Hungarian fleet are equipped with a fast roping system, high-performance camera, dual cargo hook, hoist, disaster management kit, ballistic protection and an electronic countermeasures system.

Airbus explains these helicopters are also fitted with its internally developed HForce weapon management system, which allows Hungary to equip and operate its aircraft with a large set of ballistic or guided air-to-ground and air-to-air weapons.

Hungary has also ordered 16 H225M multi-purpose helicopters equipped with HForce. Airbus explains the country’s future combined H145M / H225M fleet will enable Hungarian Defence Forces to cover missions from light utility, tactical transport, combat search and rescue up to light attack.
