Airbus will also provide extensive training and support package with the helicopters under the agreement.

Helicopters procured by Hungary will have a high-performance camera, fire support equipment, ballistic protection and electronic countermeasures and fast rope equipment. Platform will also fire air to air and air to ground ammunitions thanks to HForce weapons system.

Driven by two Saffron Arriel 2E engines equipped with FADEC, the H145M is equipped with Helionic digital cockpit equipment with a four-axis autopilot that reduces the pilot's workload. The low acoustic signature of the H145M is one of the quietest helicopters in its class.
