Following the usual maintenance operations before its induction, the maritime helicopter was transferred to the 33F flotilla (naval helicopter squadron) in Lanvéoc-Poulmic naval air station (Brittany) on August 12, 2015. This brings to five the number of Caimans in this flotilla.

The NH90 NFH boasts a state-of-the-art weapons system that combines – as part of a high-performance platform – a package of ultra-modern electronic, acoustic and optronic sensors as well as weapons loads adapted to anti-ship (ASuW) and anti-submarine (ASW) missions. The helicopter also performs SAR, amphibious, maritime surveillance and anti-piracy missions.

Earlier this year, French Navy Caiman crews passed some major qualification steps such as IOC for the release of counter measures and IOC for ASW with MU90 torpedo. In a march, an NH90 Caiman conducted the first ever operational deployement with Horizon class air-defence destroyer Chevalier Paul.
