The NH90 is a medium-sized, twin-engine, multi-role military helicopter, developed in response to NATO requirements for a multiple capability helicopter.
Although Norway has operated the NH90 from Coastguard ships in a search and rescue and surveillance role for a number of years, the Norwegian Naval Frigate Helicopter variant of the NH90 is being introduced to further support the strategic requirement to patrol and protect Norwegian territorial waters from current and future threats. It also contributes increased Anti-Submarine Warfare capability to NATO forces and operations.
