(Source: Thales; issued June 17, 2016)
Following a selection process which began in 2014, Forges de Zeebrugge (FZ) and TDA Armements SAS (TDA), both 100% affiliates of Thales Group, have been selected by Airbus Helicopters as preferred suppliers of guided rocket systems for its military helicopter range equipped with the HForce weapon system.

This selection is an extension of the existing agreement between Airbus Helicopters, FZ and TDA covering the integration, supply and support of air-to-ground rocket systems. Many different Airbus Helicopters platforms including H225M, H125M, H135M, H145M, H215M and the Tiger attack helicopter are equipped with FZ and TDA rocket systems.

HForce is a new modular weapon system launched by Airbus Helicopters early 2016 offering helicopter operators a flexible, modular and affordable integrated multipurpose solution to fulfil a wide array of missions and is aimed to be the standard weapon management system on future programmes.
