In one article published in the daily Ouest-France, we learn that the French Navy will in the course of 2020 receive the first used Dauphin helicopters which will, for the occasion, be rented to a group between the companies DCI and Heli-Union. This 10-year contract was notified on December 3, 2019, and relates to 12 Dauphin helicopters acquired second-hand from companies that used them for the benefit of oil companies in the offshore sector in Africa. They will be previously revised, modernized and adapted to the specific needs of the French Navy by HeliDax, and will replace the Alouette III and Lynx remaining in service in naval aeronautics on the Surveillance Frigates serving overseas, the PHA helicopter carriers, the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier and supply buildings. They will also arm the Immediate Assault Plan for the benefit of state forces, in the event of a terrorist attack.
