Main description

The All-Weather,
Multi-Role Force Multiplier
The AS565 MBe is the naval version of the Panther family of helicopters. This all-weather, multi-role light helicopter can be operated from ship decks or offshore to cover a vast array of naval missions  such as maritime surveillance, search  and rescue (SAR), casualty evacuation,  vertical replenishment, offshore patrolling and counter-terrorism. The  AS565 MBe is the ideal complementary  asset for anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface warfare (ASuW) tasks, such as submarine and surface target  destruction: It can launch its own torpedoes and provide Over-the-Horizon Targeting (OTHT) to surface ships.
