Euro­copter's Tiger he­li­copter

SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

The Tiger has the dis­tinc­tion of be­ing the first all-com­pos­ite he­li­copter de­vel­oped in Europe, and in­cor­po­rates other ad­vanced fea­tures such as a glass cock­pit, stealth tech­nol­ogy and high agility in or­der to in­crease its sur­viv­abil­ity. Im­proved vari­ants have also en­tered ser­vice, out­fit­ted with more pow­er­ful en­gines and com­pat­i­bil­ity with a wider range of weapons. Since the type's in­tro­duc­tion to ser­vice, Tigers have been used in com­bat in Afghanistan, Libya, and Mali.
