I like the NH90 helcopters the Government has just purchased, even though the average cost (incl spare parts) is close to $100 million each.
The NH() has the following stats:
– 290 km/hr max speed
– 8.8 m/s max climb (that is pretty good)
– 3.14 km max hover height
– 910 km range
– 19.56 m rotor length
– 20 seat capacity
They can also be armed with anti-submarine and/or anti-surface missiles!
It’s nice to see the RNZAF getting some of the latest equipment. Now just need some planes to match them!
