In mid-2017 the German Army received the last of the fifteen H145M special operations helicopters it had ordered in 2013 from European firm EADS. These light helicopters went through a few changes between the time they were ordered and when they were delivered. For one thing there was a name change. When ordered they were called the EC645T2 but even then they were to be modified to specifications provided by the German special operations command for use by the KSK (Kommando Spezialkräfte) commandos. The H145M/EC645T2 is similar to the American UH-72A Lakota.
