The Eurocopter EC665 Tiger was a joint venture by MBB and Aerospatiale launched in 1984. Due high costs, the program was cancelled in 1986 but was relaunched during 1987 and 5 prototypes were built. First flight took place in 1991. New setbacks delayed serial production to March 2002 with both France and Germany each ordering 80 aircraft. As of 2010 less than 30 of these were delivered.

Australia and Spain joined the programme providing benefits to their local industries.

In 2009, they flew their first combat mission when three french Tigres where deployed to Afghanistan. In 2011 they saw action again when they were used against Libya

From 2014 marketed by Airbus Helicopters

As of August 2015, more than 120 Tiger of all variants have been delivered to four nations accumulating more than 68,000 flying hours.

As of December 2017, Tiger fleet flying with France, Germany, Spain and Australia logged over 92,000 flight hours.
