Description: The Airbus Helicopters H145M, formerly the Eurocopter EC645, is a 3.5-ton highly capable, medium-sized multirole platform for armed reconnaissance, fire support, observation, airlift missions and search & rescue. It is a militarized version of the proven EC145 civil helicopter. The EC645 is equipped with the Stand Alone Weapon System (SAWS) developed by Eurocopter and ATE and incorporates a mission computer, an electro-optical system with TV and infrared cameras and laser telemeter (with laser designator as needed), a targeting system with a helmet mounted sight and display, two multi-purpose weapon pylons with slaving units, and a choice of weapons loads (guns, missiles and unguided or guided rockets). Eurocopter displayed the EC645 helicopter for the first time at the Eurosatory exhibition in June 2010. The H145M/EC645 T2 entered service in 2015 with the German Special Operations command.

The H145M/EC645 integrated weapons system along with the aircraft's glass cockpit provides full situational awareness for the crew, while self-protection is provided by the helicopter's armor, self-sealing fuel tanks, threat detectors and chaff/flare dispensers. Its unobstructed large main cabin is easily re-configurable to maximize its mission flexibility and the helicopter's sliding side and rear clamshell doors optimize access. The high-set main and tail rotors provide unparalleled safety, access and space utilization, and allow loading/unloading of cargo, passengers and patients while the rotors are turning.
