Airbus Helicopters delivered the first NH90 Sea Lion to BAAINB, Germany, on October 24, 2019. Meanwhile, due to problems with technical documentation, the Navy could not start using the new machine, as this could turn into a security problem. Now difficulties of this kind, as far as one can judge, have been eliminated.

In total, 18 NH90 Sea Lion helicopters were ordered for the German Navy: machine deliveries should be completed in 2022. In the Armed Forces, the helicopter will replace the old transport Sikorsky S-61 Sea King: the NH90 Sea Lion was chosen as its successor in March 2013, the corresponding contract was signed in 2015.

Recall, in December last year, the first of the previously ordered multi-purpose helicopters MN-139A was handed over to the US Strategic Forces.
