    Sea Lion Delivered to MFG5

    Bundeswehr, June 11, 2020 - On June 4, the German Navy took delivery of the NH90 NTH (Naval Transport Helicopter) “Sea Lion” multi-purpose helicopter.

    This modern helicopter will replace the Sea King Mk41 in the medium term and will take over its tasks including sea rescue. In addition, the fleet can also use the Sea Lion for reconnaissance purposes.

    The takeover was carried out internally by the German Federal Office for Equipment, Information Technology and Utilization of the German Armed Forces (BAAINBw, Bundesamt für Ausrüstung, Informationstechnik und Nutzung der Bundeswehr).

    The Navy's Inspector, Vice Admiral Andreas Krause, had already approved this process on May 27. An official ceremony for the inauguration of the Sea Lion in the naval forces will follow on June 25.

    At present, Naval Air Wing 5 at Nordholz base already has three Sea Lions and it is planned to procure a total of 18 NTH.

    The NTH abbreviation is used in contrast to TTH (Tactical Transport Helicopter) which is the land-based variant used by the Army.
