    French Navy NH90 Achieves IOC with MU90 Torpedo


    Marine Nationale, March 13, 2015 - The Marine Nationale (French Navy) announced that its NH90 NATO Frigate Helicopter (NFH) Caïman achieved its Initial Operational Capability (IOC) for Anti Submarine Warfare (ASW) missions with the EuroTorp MU90 Torpedo.

    This is a major capability step for the FREMM / NH90 combo that can now deal with the submarine threat from a safer distance.

    The French Navy took delivery of its first NH90 in May 2010. At first it fulfilled Maritime Rescue and Maritime Counter-Terrorism missions.

    In February 2013, it achieved the on-board anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capability and was used for the protection of Carrier Battle Group or for the French SSBNs.

    Now it has the capacity to hunt and engage submarines autonomously.

    A NH90 Caiman is currently accomplishing its First Operational Deployment on board the Horizon class air-defence destroyer Chevalier Paul
