H125M

H125M

The lightweight armed helicopter

Airbus’ two-tonne H125M (formerly the AS550 C3e Fennec) responds to military requirements for a cost-effective armed platform with a very small footprint and excellent manoeuvrability.


Best in class

As the most capable armed scout helicopter in its category, the single-engine H125M combines power, discretion and targeted firepower.

Aircraft

A versatile airborne platform

The H125M is tailored for locating and attacking targets of opportunity. It relies on the qualities of power, simplicity, firing stability and stealth to carry out a diverse range of demanding missions.

The H125M can be equipped with Airbus’ HForce weapons system – a comprehensive, modular and cost-efficient weapon system that can be used on any military version of Airbus’ civil helicopter range (H125M, H145M and H225M). 

Able to fly discreetly in the battlefield with a small silhouette, the H125M has a reduced radar signature through the use of composite materials and infrared-reflective paint.

This helicopter benefits from the excellent handling characteristics and easy-to-fly qualities that are inherent in Airbus’ single-engine Ecureuil family – which holds the world altitude record (landing on Mount Everest at 8,848 metres), and is fully operational in high and hot environments.

Built for performance

Fitted with Safran’s powerful Arriel 2D engine with a dual-channel full authority digital engine control (FADEC) system, the H125M is well-suited to perform combat flights.

In the cockpit, Airbus’ vehicle and engine multifunction display (VEMD®) provides accurate information on the aircraft’s condition and performance, dramatically reducing crew workload.

 

Missions

Armed reconnaissance

When called on for armed reconnaissance, the H125M’s ability to fire a variety of weapons ensures rapid-response fire support for troops.

The H125M can be equipped with Airbus’ HForce weapons system – a comprehensive, modular and cost-efficient weapon system that can be used on any military version of Airbus’ civil helicopter range (H125M, H145M and H225M). 

 

Tactical air control

With the longest range in its category, the H125M is well-suited to serve tactical air control parties in effectively guiding attack helicopters and fixed-wing aircraft.     

The H125M's spacious interior, with no separation between the cockpit and the cabin, facilitates communications between crew members, and offers an excellent field of view – even from behind.
