100,000

This was the number of flight hours recorded by the Attack Helicopter Battalion #1 of the Spanish Army Airmobile Force as of August 19, 2008. The battalion’s BO105s and HAP(1) versions of the Tiger notched up 99.5% of this total, performing armed reconnaissance missions, training flights, and special training operations for the formation of the new HAP Tiger division. By early 2009, the Spanish Army Airmobile Force will have received the sixth and final Tiger in its HAP version. From then on, the Spanish army will receive 18 HAD(2) versions of the Tiger.
