    The Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter (ARH) is the version ordered by the Australian Army based on the Eurocopter Tigre HAP and to be assembled locally by Australian Aerospace

    In December 2001 Eurocopter was awarded the contract for the Australian Army’s Air 87 requirement for 22 helicopters. The Tiger ARH is a modified version of the Tiger HAP with upgraded MTR390 engines and a laser designator incorporated in the Strix sight for the firing of Hellfire II air-to-ground missiles. The first Tiger ARH was scheduled to enter service in 2004. Australian Aerospace (a subsidiary of Eurocopter) is to set up a local production facility for assembly of the helicopters and the manufacture of parts for the entire programme. ADI Ltd will be a major subcontractor, responsible for customising the mission and communications systems
