Helicopter 15

Helicopter 15

The design of Helicopter 15 is based on the civilian standard helicopter A109 Power from Leonardo, formerly AgustaWestland. It is to serve primarily as a tactical training helicopter but it can also perform rescue missions.

Helicopter crews training land and maritime missions require a helicopter that is less expensive to fly than the heavier helicopter systems.

FMV has delivered 20 helicopters, twelve operative over land and eight operative over sea. The maritime version of Helicopter 15 has ship-based capability and can integrate with the Visby corvette and with HMS Karlskrona.

Swedish version of British-Italian standard helicopter

FMV has procured an advanced version with stronger engines, increased protection and a number of modifications. Perhaps the most important modification is a new avionics system with a glass cockpit in which information is presented to the pilots on displays.

The helicopter has good mission flexibility due to a wide range of mission equipment. It can easily and quickly be reconfigured to suit the operational requirements of various mission profiles. The platform is mission-capable day or night (equipped with Night Vision Goggles (NVG)) and is designed to be able to fly in adverse weather conditions.
