    2020 to present


    Ejercito del Aire NH90 TTH

    Original plans called for 104 NH90 to be assembled locally at Albacete and distributed between the 3 armed Forces. In 2005 the order was reduced to 45. In 2013 the number was set to a first batch of 22 which 16 TTH will go first to the Army and 6 later in SAR configuration to the Air Force. The Air Force is scheduled to receive 6 more from a planned batch-2.

    Air Force prototype first unveiled December 20, 2017 at Albacete.

    First SAR NH90, nicknamed HD.29 LOBO in Spanish service, delivered from Airbus Marignane to Airbus Albacete for final customization on June 18, 2020 and scheduled to enter service with 803 Squadron/48 Wing before end of the year. Five GSPA 2 will be delivered in 2020/2021 followed by six GSPA 3 afterwards
