Main description

A talented aircraft

The AS550 C3e Fennec is Airbus Helicopters’ 2-ton class answer to Armed Forces requirements. Easy to operate in extreme and harsh conditions, this Armed Scout helicopter combines safety and performance.

A very small footprint,
providing low detectability

Incredibly manoeuvrable and agile, the Fennec is perfectly designed to perform combat flight (nap of the earth - NOE). The Fennec is naturally stealth and NOE increases its protection against military threat.
