So both the Tiger and the NH.90 are going, that's a firm goodbye to Airbus in Australia :-S
With the NH.90 problems in Norway, Sweden and Belgium, the helicopter section of Airbus is taking a hit. Good they still have the EC.135 and 145!
The NH90 is not (solely) an Airbus product,
But a co-product with Leonardo and Fokker which might result in it being in many ways not a succes story.
And I think building it in to many versions and sub versions means a lot additional (maintenance) costs.
Airbus is selling a lot of there 'own' products H135 H145 H215/H225 H160 etc.
As does Leonardo with AW139 AW169 AW149 etc..
I sincerely hope they all learned from NH90 program for the new NATO next-generation helicopter...
