Development of the Tiger began in the Cold War, with the goal of being an
anti-tank helicopter to combat a Soviet invasion of Europe.
The Soviet Union collapsed before completion, but France and Germany continued
development for multiple roles including close air support, armed reconnaissance,
escort, surveillance, and post nuclear/chemical/biological warfare operations.
This multirole attack helicopter has a glass cockpit, stealth technology and high agility.
It’s been used with various weapons and engines in combat, including Libya, Mali and Afghanistan.
