Hungary's Armed Forces took delivery of its first two Airbus H225M multi-purpose helicopters at an army base in Szolnok, in central Hungary, on Monday. The two troop transport helicopters were welcomed with a water cannon salute at the base.
The Hungarian military has ordered a total of 16 H225M aircraft. The helicopters were welcomed by Brigadier-General József Koller and Colonel Zsolt Simon among others. The two helicopters were inaugurated at the Airbus Helicopters plant in Marignane earlier this month. The H225M helicopters are designed and manufactured according to the needs of the Hungarian military. The suitability test of the H225M helicopter began in 2021, with special attention given to the particularities of the aircraft’s Hungarian configuration.
