The Australian Defence Force (ADF) ordered a total of 47 MRH90s and the first 46 helicopters are scheduled to achieve final operational capability by April 2019. The Multi-Role Helicopter (MRH) programme was designed with a plan to rationalise the number of helicopter types in Australian Defence Force (ADF) service. Originally 46 aircraft had been contracted under projects AIR 9000 Phase 2, 4, and 6. Phase 2 (12 helicopters) was the acquisition of troop-lift aircraft for the Australian Army; Phase 4 (28 helicopters) was to replace the Army’s Sikorsky S-70 Black Hawk helicopters; and Phase 6 (6 helicopters) was to replace the Royal Australian Navy’s (RAN’s) Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King helicopters.

The helicopter has a four-bladed main rotor and a high positioned tail rotor coupled with the main transmission for anti-torque function. The tricycle type retractable landing gear features two single-tire main units to retract into the centre fuselage as well as a twin-wheel nose unit to pull back into the forward fuselage.

Multi Ammunition Softkill System (MASS)

Multi Ammunition Softkill System (MASS)

MASS (Multi Ammunition Softkill System) is a naval self-defence system produced by Rheinmetall of Germany. It is connected to the ship’s sensors and protects ships from attacks by advanced, sensor-guided missiles by launching decoys that operate in all relevant wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum: ultraviolet, electro-optical, laser, infrared, and radar. MASS can be either plugged into the command and control module of a naval vessel, or operate autonomously. Rheinmetall has developed MASS Stand Alone with Sensor Suite, a standalone system with a built-in sensor suite designed especially for smaller seagoing units. The number of launchers is variable – typically one or two, though this number can be increased. The system comes with a sensor suite with radar and laser warner, a control unit and energy supply.

Ordinarily, MASS consists of between one and six trainable launchers that can fire 32 special effect charges. Each launcher comes with a control unit and a data interface (Ethernet/RS422 or other standard interface). The automatic decoy system MASS provides a unique level of protection against modern sensor-guided missiles. MASS can be installed on ships of all types and can be integrated into existing command systems. The new MASS_ISS features built-in sensors for detecting radar and laser threats. Programmable and omni-spectral, the system’s innovative ammunition provides protection in all relevant wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrum.
