The Tiger helicopter features high survivability over preceding helicopter generations through reduced infrared, visual, radar and acoustic signatures. In addition, the cockpit can be ejected in the event of a fatal failure or damage, saving the crew. The Tiger also features low costs of ownership and reduced maintainability.
The Tiger MkIII is the next generation of the Tiger attack helicopter being developed to meet the requirements of the French, German and Spanish armies.

The first de-risking study for the MkIII was started in September 2018 and may deliver an operational aircraft by the mid 2020s.
