Description: The Tiger is a lightweight, two-seat, attack helicopter designed to perform a wide range of missions. It is available in combat fire support and anti-tank configurations. It features and advanced design with extensive use of composites and state-of-the-art avionics. It can accommodate anti-tank and air-to-air missiles, 68mm rockets, and small/medium caliber guns as well as advanced sights. The Tiger attack helicopter has been selected by the France, Germany and Australia for their armed forces. France plans to purchase up to 215 Tigers, Germany 212, and Australia 22 Tiger ARHs. Germany and France placed an initial order for 80 Tigers each through 2011. 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 HAC, known as Tiger UHT in Germany, will perform anti-tank missions using HOT or Trigat missiles and the Osiris mast-mounted sight. The Tiger HAC also features self-defense capability against airborne threats through the use of Mistral Missiles. The German Army Aviation took delivery of the first production Eurocopter UH-Tiger helicopter on April 6, 2005. The official delivery ceremony occurred at Le Luc French/German Tiger training center in the South of France.

OCCAR, Rheinmetall and Thales signed a production contract, worth 236 million euros, of Tiger combat helicopter simulators. The signing ceremony was conducted in Bonn, Germany, on March 16, 2005. The contract calls for 18 simulators to be produced, nine mission simulators and nine trainers, with associated support equipment and services and an option for a further 11 simulators. Simulators will be based at joint Franco-German Tiger training center at Le Luc, France, and in operational regiments in both Germany (Fritzlar and Roth) and France (Pau and Étain). Around 60 pilots will be trained each year at Le Luc training center. Simulators deliveries are expected to begin in 2006 and will continue through 2012. The Australian Army will get four simulators, still under development, of its Tiger ARH with the first delivery anticipated in early 2006.
