The French procurement agency DGA (Direction Générale de l’Armement) has delivered the second EADS Eurocopter EC225 SECMAR (Sécurité Maritime) search and rescue helicopter to the French Navy (Marine Nationale).

These two helicopters operated by the Flottille 32F at BAN Lanvéoc-Poulmic were ordered in December 2009 to replace the recently retired SA 321G Super Frelon helicopters and as an intermediate solution due to delays with the NH 90 NFH deliveries.
