Description: The AS 365 Dauphin, 'Dolphin' in English, is a medium-weight twin-engine helicopter derived from SA 360 Dauphin single-engine helicopter. The original model named SA 365 Dauphin 2 first flew in 1975 with the first production aircraft delivered in 1978. The helicopter family is available for civil customers under the AS365 Dauphin designation. The AS565 Panther is the designation for the aircraft tailored for military customers. Aerospatiale of France developed this helicopter family in the 1970s as the Dauphin 2. The company was re-structured in the 1990s becoming Eurocopter and Airbus Helicopters in the mid-2010s. The Dauphin/Panther is equipped with a four-blad main rotor and a Fenestron shrouded tail rotor. It is powered by two Turbomeca Arriel 2C turboshaft engines each rated at 749-shp and allowing a top speed of 278 kilometers per hour. The Arriel 2C2 engine was provided to the models produced in the 2000s.

The AS365 Dauphin helicopter is intended to perform transport, law enforcement and search and rescue (SAR) missions. The Dauphin was sold to the United States Coast Guard (USCG) as the HH-65 Dolphin powered by LTS101 engines. In October 2004 American Eurocopter was awarded a $124 million contract for the re-engining of 95 HH-65s with options on 84 additional aircraft. This re-engining program was expected to provide the Turbomeca Arriel 2C2 turboshaft engines to the entire HH-65 fleet by January 2007. Arriel 2C2 was selected because they offered more power and fully engine digital control. HH-65 powered by Arriel 2C2s are referred to as the HH-65C. HH-65C deliver improved performance compared with HH-65B.
