Germany's Landespolizei Baden Württemberg has ordered six Airbus Helicopters (Eurocopter) EC145 T2 helicopters, becoming the first law enforcement customer for this evolved version of the twin-engined EC145. The aircraft are due for delivery in 2015 and 2016, and will equip the police force in the south west German state with a highly capable multi-role fleet.

The latest rotorcraft feature Arriel 2E engines along with upgraded main and tail rotor gear boxes, digital avionics and four-axis autopilot.

“With the procurement of six new police helicopters, we guarantee the highest standard for the police units,” says Reinhold Gall, minister of the interior of Baden Württemberg. “At the same time, the change to a fleet of one helicopter type allows savings in maintenance and training.”

The force currently operates Eurocopter-built EC155 helicopters and the MD902 Explorer, both of which are to be succeeded by the T2.
