Dispelling Myths: Examining the Caracal Multifunctional Helicopter in Comparison to the Eurocopter EC725 and Breaking Barriers.pink

Basically, the EC725 is a further development of the Eurocopter AS532 Cougar, improving upon the design with a five-blade composite main rotor to reduce vibration levels. The helicopter can be fitted with removable armor panels to protect the troops and is powered by two Turbomeca Makila 1A4 turboshaft engines mounted over the cabin, which feature a dual-channel Full Authority Digital Engine Control system.

Thanks to the anti-icing system, the helicopter can operate in very cold climates. The EC725 can be used for land and sea transport missions, as well as other special missions. Other improvements include a reinforced main rotor gearbox and an all-glass cockpit. The cockpit is designed for two-person crews, protected by bulletproof glass. The pilots are supported by an integrated display system featuring a digital map and Active Matrix Liquid Crystal Displays.

Behind the cockpit is the passenger compartment, which takes up most of the fuselage. EC725 can carry 5.67 tons of cargo or 29 soldiers. Above the passenger cabin are the engines, driving a five-bladed main rotor and a four-bladed tail rotor. Overall dimensions of the EC-725 include a length of 19.5 meters (63.97 feet) and a height of 4.6 meters (15 feet).

The landing system consists of two main single-wheeled legs and a double tire nose leg. An in-flight refueling probe can be mounted on the starboard side of the aircraft to refuel on the flight, so the range of operation is greatly extended. Many different kits are available for customers to equip EC725 for the required tasks.

Airbus has equipped EC-725 with two Turbomeca Makila 2A1 turboshaft engines, with a capability of 2,382 horsepower each. The helicopter can reach a maximum speed of 324 km/h, a cruising speed of 285 km/h, a range of 920 km, a service ceiling of 6,000m, and a rate of climb up to 7.4 meters per second.

The helicopter has day and night search and rescue capabilities by way of a search radar and Forward Looking Infrared. These allow the EC725 to be flown under visual meteorological conditions. Depending on the requirements of the customer, EC725 can be customized with different equipment and weapons, such as a pair of 7.62 mm FN MAG machine guns mounted forward left and right windows, or a pair of 68 mm side-mounted rocket launchers, each with 19 rockets, or the MU90 impact aerial torpedo.

Thanks to its flexible modular structure, the EC725 can be equipped with a Helibras-built countermeasure suite, which includes chaff and flare to counter radar and heat-guided missiles respectively. Recently, Airbus has successfully tested the EC-725 version with the anti-ship Exocet, helping to improve the combat capability of the helicopter.

Overall, there are about 90 EC-725 helicopters operating with Brazil, France, Mexico, etc. Most recently, the Royal Thai Air Force ordered a total of four EC-725 helicopters as part of the country’s military modernization program. EC-725 will replace the outdated Bell UH-1 helicopters, which have been in service since the late 1960s. In addition to Thailand, several other countries in…
