Airbus Helicopters announced on June 29, 20918, that the Hungarian MoD has placed an order for 20 H145M helicopters, together with a training and support package to be delivered by the manufacturer.

The helicopters are being acquired under the Hungarian government’s Zrinyi 2026 modernisation programme and will be equipped with Airbus Helicopters’ HForce weapon management system. Tom Enders, CEO of Airbus, said: “We are honoured to be of service, once more to the Hungarian Ministry of Defence, whom we today welcome as a new customer for our H145M helicopter. With this new order we are fostering our excellent and trustful relationship with the Hungarian armed forces, after their acquisition of two A319 military troop transports last year.” Nigel Pittaway
