    France has ordered seven more Tiger attack helicopters from Airbus, the French defence procurement agency (DGA) announced on 22 December.

    The latest order will bring France's total inventory of Tiger helicopters (known in France as the Tigre) to 67 aircraft. The new aircraft will be delivered between 2017 and 2018, the DGA stated.

    The DGA stated that, "The objective [of ordering the extra Tigers] is to strengthen the capacity of the French forces to conduct air-land operations in the Sahel-Saharan regions of Africa in particular."

    Its the perfect size helicopter for France that needs to neutralize terrorists far away from home. France is ordering 50 A-400Ms, in a matter of no time they can have a large helicopter force some where in Africa within very short notice.
