Ahh yeah now i remembert confused the GIAT 30 with the RMK30.

The RMK30 was only ever fitted to a Wiesel, the cannon armament for the UHT Tiger was dropped since the military wanted a pure anti tank helicopter until it was to late to change it to a more appropriate concept for the time.

The real meme here is that in the 80s the PAH1 [the bo105 we are getting] was considered the predecessor to the PAH2 which was supposed to be the tiger.

[PAH => Panzerabwehrhubschrauber => Anti Tank helicopter]

After all a version with a cannon would be probably more profitable but honestly for me its sensors > weapons, although the french/australian version have a laser designator which is also fancy.

All of them would be probably the best solution.

"another helo of thier current product line at the moment too.
I can not say anything about the 3rd helo, but if we get a full clearance you all will have something nice to play woth "

Since we didnt see, and I dont expect to see a non armed plane yet, I guess the EC145 is unlikely.

Also to be considered here is that borchi said, IF they get a full clearance.

Armed but not necessarily military helicopters are the Super Puma, Fennec and Panther.
But all of theese wont need any clearance in terms of classification probably. Since they are all civilian helicopters with some simple weapon systems straped on to them.

The only pure military helicopters eurocopter builds atm, are the NH90 and the Tiger.
So yeah, I would expect, they want to do one of them both. If they got a full clerance or not will probably be only brought to light by time.

The militarised version of the EC145, the H145M, can carry weapons. I'd love to see a "modern" equivalent of the Gazelle/BO-105 with glass cockpit etc.
