The Portuguese Ministry of Defence has suspended participation in the NH90 program and will no longer take delivery of the ten they had ordered.  The fleet was intended for the Portuguese Army, and were the TTH (Tactical Trasport Helicopter) variant.  The cancellation is believed to be driven by budgetary cost savings.

The NH90 acquisition was to be the launching of an air mobility capability for the Portuguese Army.
