Rockwell Collins, September 12, 2017 - LONDON – Rockwell Collins has delivered its first FMC-4212 mission computer to Airbus Helicopters for the HForce onboard weapon system program, which enables the conversion of any commercial helicopter from the Airbus Helicopters platform into an armed, battle-ready unit for military operations.
