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.
