Selected in 2005, the NH90 is locally assembled by Australian Aerospace in Brisbane. 46 MRH-90 (TTH) are ordered with 12 delivered as of 2011. Last aircraft is expected to be delivered by 2015.
Between April/July 2010, the fleet was grounded due to an incident with their engines.
In June 2011, the Royal Australian Navy rejected the model so the MRH-90 would be operated only by the Army but in 2012 a decision was made in order to reactivated 808 Sqn in the support role.
