(January 8, 2009) -- The French Defence Procurement Agency (DGA) has ordered a further 22 NH90 TTH (Tactical Transport Helicopter) helicopters for the French Army Aviation on the 23rd of December from NHIndustries consortium.
With this second batch, after the initial 12 aircraft ordered in November 2007, there are now 34 NH 90 TTH to be delivered to the French Army from 2011 onwards. All the NH90 TTH for France will be manufactured at Eurocopter's site in Marignane.
Lutz Bertling, CEO of Eurocopter commented: "With this new contract, the French Army confirms that the NH90 TTH is fully answering its operational requirements. In addition to the 27 NH90 NFH ordered in 2000 for the Navy, the French Armed Forces clearly demonstrate, with 61 firm orders, their confidence in the programme."
