The Fennec is a single-engined, light-weight, multipurpose helicopter manufactured by Eurocopter. Based on the Eurocopter Ecureuil series, it is named after the Fennec, a small fox found in the Sahara Desert of North Africa which has distinctive oversized ears. The armed version can be fitted with coaxial weapons, and a small number of rockets.


Operational History

In February 2007, India selected the Fennec over the Bell 407 helicopter in a deal for 197 helicopters worth 500 million USD.[1] This deal was suspended in June 2007 because of concerns of corruption in the bidding process, and cancelled outright on 6 December 2007.[2]
