Belgian Army Equipment

Post by lucas »

Hi all,

The Belgian army has different types of helikopters. I am wondering which helikopters are part of the Navy, and which are part of the Air Force. I believe that some of the NH90's and all the Alouette III helikopters are part of the Navy. Can someone confirm that?

All the Belgian helicopters are currently operated by the Air Force (or rather the Air Component), even those specifically used for naval operations (NH90 Caiman). In a distant past, helicopters were belonging to the Army (Light Aviation), the Navy, the Air Force and even the Gendarmerie (which was part of the Army).
