The Norwegian NH90 NFH are built in Tessera (Italy) by Finmeccanica Helicopters Division; they are equipped with a sonic suite built around a Flash dipping Sonar, a multimode ENR radar, an Electro Optic suite with laser rangefinder and an ALQ 211 ESM suite.
Norway so far took delivery of 6 NH90s out of 14 ordered. The next phase of the programme includes the delivery of six helicopters configured for Anti-Submarine Warfare and two further helicopters configured for Coast Guard operations.

The Norwegian NH90NFH is a maritime helicopter, able to operate in the most demanding conditions by day and night thanks to its state of the art mission system, its De- icing system and its various sensors such as its Electronic Warfare suite, its multimode Radar and its sonic suite.
The NH90 is the optimal choice for modern operations thanks to its large full composite airframe, its excellent power to weight ratio; and its wide range of rôle equipment. It features a redundant Fly-by-Wire flight control system for reduced Pilot’s workload and enhanced flight characteristics.
The NH90 is proposed in two main variants, one dedicated to naval operations, the NH90NFH (Nato Frigate Helicopter) and a Tactical Transport Variant for land based operations. As of today, 270 helicopters have been delivered in Naval and Tactical transport variants. They are in service in Germany, France, Spain, Italy, The Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Greece, Oman, Belgium, Australia and New Zealand.
The twin-engine, medium-size NH90 helicopter program is managed by the consortium NHIndustries, the Company owned by Finmeccanica Helicopter Division (32%), Airbus Helicopters (62.5%), and Fokker Aerostructures (5.5%).
