The NH90 NFH Caiman replaced the Super Frelon and Lynx and entered operational service in the Marine Nationale on December 8, 2011. At the time 5 of the 27 on order were already delivered. 13 of them will have a rear loading ramp, allowing them to carry out combat assault missions. The other 14 will be used in the antisubmarine role.
