France:

The original order was signed for 80 helicopters divided in 40 Tigre HAP and 40 Tigre HAD. Budget cuts lead to a change resulting in a cut back of the order to 60 helicopters and a retrofit of 36 Tigre HAP to Tigre HAD.

The first retrofitted Tigre HAP has been delivered to the French Army Airbus announced in a press release on December 21, 2017.

On December 23rd Airbus Helicopters announced an order by the French Defense Procurement Agency (DGA) for seven Tigre HAD helicopters bringing the total ordered Tigres to 67.

Germany:

The original order was signed for 80 helicopters but changed to 68 in 2013. On July 25, 2018 the last Tiger was delivered to Germany. It will be delivered to KHR 36. More than 30 Tigers who have been operated for many years will receive an hard- and software upgrade to bring them to the latest specifications.
