    <p>To support its 22 Tiger armed reconnaissance helicopters (ARH), Australia is to get its own training infrastructure. ARH is essentially an HAP variant, but with the Lockheed Martin AGM-114 Hellfire II anti-tank missile and 70mm instead of 68mm rockets. As a result, it will have a different helmet-mounted sighting system and head-up display. </p> <p>A project team of 16 Australian engineers, logisticians, test pilots, flying instructors and project managers is in Provence to oversee the project. Most of the team, including its commander, Lt Col Andrew Dudgeon, is based at Marignane, while two engineers are based in Paris. </p> <p>"So far three out of 13 instructors have completed their type conversions here," he says. "ARH conversion will follow 75h each on the HAP and, hopefully, some simulator time. Further Tiger weapon training will take place at a redeveloped Army Aviation Centre at Oakey, Queensland, beginning in early 2005.
