The history of the Cougar goes back to the Anglo-French SA 330 Puma helicopter. This 1965 stemming medium tactical support helicopter was mainly intended for the transportation of people and equipment directly into the combat zone. Later, the Puma was extended by the French branch of Eurocopter and aggravated. The result was the AS 332 Super Puma, which was again developed a specific military version: AS 532U2 Cougar.
