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 the Tigre HAP to Tigre HAD.
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.
