The Hungarian Ministry of Defence has ordered 20 Airbus Helicopters H145M military helicopters equipped with the HForce weapon management system under the Zrinyi 2026 military modernisation programme. Airbus will also provide an extensive training and support package.
The H145M can be used for a wide range of tasks, including troop transport, utility, surveillance, air rescue, armed reconnaissance and medical evacuation. The Hungarian fleet will be equipped with a fast roping system, high-performance camera, fire support equipment, ballistic protection as well as an electronic countermeasures system to support the most demanding operational requirements.
The H145M was first delivered in 2015 to the German Armed Forces and has since been ordered by Thailand and the Republic of Serbia.
Powered by two Safran Arriel 2E engines, the 3.7t H145M is equipped with full authority digital engine control (FADEC) and the Helionix digital avionics suite. It includes a high-performance 4-axis autopilot, increasing safety and reducing pilot workload.
