The Eurocopter (now Airbus Helicopters) EC725 Caracal (also named Super Cougar) is a long-range tactical transport helicopter developed from the Super Puma/Cougar family for military use. It is a twin-engined aircraft and can carry up to 29 seated troops along with two crew, depending on customer configuration. The helicopter is marketed for troop transport, casualty evacuation, and combat search and rescue duties, and is similar to the civilian EC225.
The EC725 was developed to meet a French Air Force requirement for a specialist helicopter for Combat Search & Rescue operations after the AS532 A2 Cougar model was rejected for this purpose following extensive trials between 1996 and 1999. The more ambitious EC725 design made its maiden flight at Marignane on the 27 November 2000 and the machine made its first presentation on the 15 January 2001. The French Air Force subsequently ordered 6 for Combat Search & Rescue duties with the first being delivered in February 2005. Eight more helicopters were ordered for the French Armed Forces in November 2002. Indonesian Aerospace (PT. Dirgantara Indonesia/PTDI) also takes part in the development of EC725. Based on the original design and license from Eurocopter, Indonesian Aerospace is currently developing 6 units for Indonesian Armed Forces which are scheduled to be delivered in 2014.
