German Nh90


The NH90 was formerly a product of the NHIndustries conglomerate, which is now part of Airbus Helicopters. This multi-role machine is available in two main versions, the TTH (Tactical Transport Helicopter) and NFH (NATO Frigate Helicopter). It is the former that will feature in both the flying and static display at RIAT 2022, provided by the German Army. Not only is this the first appearance by a German NH90 at RAF Fairford but it is marks a welcome return for the German Army who previously attended in 2016.

The German Army were the first NH90 customer to receive their aircraft with deliveries beginning in 2006 and has ordered 82 NH90 TTH in total. The forward and centre fuselages, fuel system, communications, and avionics control systems of the NH90 are also produced in Germany and final assembly is split between six locations throughout Europe.
