At the end of August, an Airbus Helicopters H145M lightweight helicopter performed its first flight with a complete HForce weapon system in.

Thanks to this modular weapon system, the helicopter can be equipped with all kind of guided and ballistic armaments such as missiles and laser guided rockets, guns, machine guns and rockets. The qualification of HForce for use on the H145M is planned for 2018.

The next steps prior to qualification include a firing campaign, testing the whole fire mission spectrum through guns, cannons and rockets in Hungary as well as tests on the laser-guided rockets in Sweden before the end of the year.

Serbia has ordered nine H145Ms, including four attack helicopters equipped with HForce system.
