Luftforsvaret NH90 NFH

Six NFH (ASW) to be used by 334 Squadron from the Fridtjof Nansen class frigates and eight NFH (CG) to replace the Westland Lynx on 337 Squadron for Kystvakt (Coast Guard) duties were ordered in 2005 but dating from 2001.

Deliveries should have been completed in 2008, but as of 2012 only one aicraft have been delivered and Norway has warned NH Industries that if performance and capability are not resolved could face the cancellation of its order.

As of 2017 only six (in CG configuration) have been delivered. The rest are expected through 2020 with a full operational capability by 2022.

Norwegian NH90s were built by Leonardo in Vergiate, Italy.

In June 2022, Norway terminated the NH90 program per se "will never be capable of meeting the requirements".
