Market leader

The RTM322 powers 60% of the worldwide fleet of Leonardo EH101/AW101 Merlin helicopters and 75% of NHIndustries NH90s. In 2013, Safran Helicopter Engines acquired the entire RTM322 program. The engine is now 100% Safran, with the French manufacturer responsible for both production and product support.

Supporting all military missions

In its different versions, the RTM 322 now meets the operational needs of all its military customers: tactical transportation, search and rescue (SAR) at sea and in combat zones, and maritime missions, in particular anti-submarine warfare.
