                        The combat helicopter that will perform the flight demonstration in August 2015 is a Tiger HAD from the French Army. It is a modern, combat-proven, high-tech helicopter with the first all-composite structure, one of the latest glass cockpits and a full range of armament allowing it to successfully fulfill multiple missions such as attack, escort, ground fire support, armed reconnaissance and combat.

                        Tiger HAD

                        The combat-proven attack helicopter

                        The Tiger HAD is Airbus’ multi-role attack helicopter, designed to perform armed reconnaissance, air or ground escort, air-to-air combat, ground fire support, destruction and anti-tank warfare, day or night and in adverse conditions. 


                        The reference in attack helicopters

                        The Tiger has proven its capabilities during operational deployments in Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, Libya and Mali.

                        Superior inside the cockpit

                        With its tandem-seat glass cockpit layout, both the pilot in the forward position and the aft-seated gunner can manage the weapon systems and primary flight controls, switching roles if necessary.

                        Each crew member’s pair of multifunction LCD displays is used to display sensor data and information on internal systems, as well as to interact with the aircraft's systems.

                        An additional display system is provided with the helmet-mounted display (HMD) – which presents flight and fire data with digitally-enhanced optics to the flying pilot. The HMD also enables the gunner to interact with, and control, the on-board weapon systems and view targeting data.

                        Powerful, modern and capable

                        The Tiger HAD is highly agile, benefitting from a 13-metre, four-bladed hingeless main rotor. It is likewise powerful, thanks to two enhanced MTR 390 turboshaft engines.

                        Avionics incorporated on the Tiger HAD are the EUROGRID battlefield management and digital map display systems, integrated radio and satellite communications and data transfer links, an IFF transponder/interrogator, and a high-authority 4-axis digital automatic flight control system.

                        The gyro-stabilised roof-mounted sight has a TV camera, thermal imager, laser rangefinder, laser designator, and a laser spot tracker capable of simultaneously following up to four targets.

                        In addition, the Tiger HAD has combat external fuel tanks for longer mission flight times, an extended flight domain in which Spike and Hellfire anti-tank missiles can be fired, and digital communications for the modern digitised battlefield.

                        Tiger HAD Block 2 helicopters are also “navalised,” allowing operations from ships and in maritime environments.

                        Maintainable in the field

                        As demonstrated in operational deployments, the Tiger HAD is easy to maintain. It does not require heavy infrastructure for maintenance operations – including engine change – and the need for manpower is limited by design.

                        Survivable

                        The Tiger HAD’s agility during flight, combined with its flat and narrow silhouette, low radar infrared signature and passive weapon system, significantly reduce this helicopter’s vulnerability on the battlefield.

                        Further enhancing survivability are the Tiger HAD’s ballistic protection, high crashworthiness and self-sealing tanks, and system architecture with designed-in redundancies and segregation.

                        Missions

                        Ground attack

                        Built for ground attack missions, the Tiger HAD’s turreted gun is one of the most accurate and lethal weapons of its type, thanks to the efficient fire control system. The gun is linked to both the roof- and the helmet-mounted sights, enabling quick and easy target acquisition.

                        Total ammunition capacity is 450 rounds, with a firing rate of 750 rounds per minute.

                        68-mm or 70-mm unguided rockets can be swapped in place of the other weapon types without changes to the helicopter’s fixed parts. Capacity is up to 68 for the 68-mm rockets, and 52 for the 70-mm rockets. Growth potential exists for laser-guided rockets.

                        The Hellfire laser-guided and Spike ER electro-optical or fiber optics-guided air-to-ground missiles are qualified on the Tiger HAD, with both capable of 8,000 metre ranges in self-designation mode.

                        Air-to-air

                        Four “fire and forget” Mistral air-to-air missiles and the Nexter 30M781 30-mm turreted gun give the Tiger HAD a powerful air-to-air combat capability.

                        A total of four Mistral missiles are accommodated on outer launchers, with a range of up to 6,000 metres.
