80 were originally ordered to replace the PAH-1 but the program was delayed and have thrown up technical problems. As of 2011, the orders have been cut to 40 with 27 already delivered by September 2012
The entire remaining Tiger fleet was grounded on 2 Aug 2019. A programme of inspection and replacement of titanium bolts in safety critical areas was instigated. Airframes were being returned to service after they had been through the programme. Bolts in non-safety critcal areas were to be replaced as part of normal line maintenance.
