The NHIndustries NH90 is a medium sized, twin-engine, multi-role military helicopter. It was developed and is manufactured by NHIndustries, which collaborates with and is owned by a number of European aerospace companies. There are two main variants, the Tactical Transport Helicopter (TTH) for Army use and the Naval Frigate Helicopter (NFH), but each have several sub-types with different weapons, sensors and cabins.
