Multi-mission performance

Military helicopters must be equipped to perform the most demanding missions in the harshest operating environments. The AW149 is a latest-generation medium multi-mission military helicopter that delivers the highly effective and survivable capability required by today’s armed forces, combining advanced technologies, equipment and weapons with unparalleled safety and performance characteristics.

Missions & Features

Flexible and effective

The AW149 blends performance, lower life-cycle costs, and day/night all-weather capability in a single platform. The large, rapidly reconfigurable cabin can accommodate a wide range of role equipment and weapon systems to enhance operational effectiveness and survivability in the battlespace.

Optimised for multiple missions

The AW149 is designed for a multitude of missions such as troop transport; re-supply/external load lift; medical and casualty evacuation; Search and Rescue (SAR) and Combat Search and Rescue; special forces operations; close air support/armed escort; Command and Control C2); and Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR).

Outstanding technology

The advanced open architecture mission system enables the quick and effective integration of mission-specific and customer-specific equipment, avionics, weapons and defence systems. The helicopter is day/night capable with a single pilot Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible, low workload glass cockpit.

Built-in safety and survivability

The AW149 ensures unparalleled crew safety. Contributing to its superior battle survivability are high levels of ballistic tolerance, crashworthy fuselage and seats, heavy duty landing gear, self-sealing fuel tanks, a fully integrated defensive aids suite along with additional armour protection.

Maximum cabin flexibility

The spacious, unobstructed cabin and large sliding doors on both sides enable the rapid transport of heavily laden troops and the efficient recovery of stretchers on the ground or in flight, while allowing simultaneous cover fire from window-mounted machine guns. A large equipment stowage area for stretchers and medical kit can be accessed optionally from the cabin.
