Airbus SE's helicopter-manufacturing division Airbus Helicopters said Thursday that the Bundeswehr, Germany's federal defense forces, ordered 31 NH90 helicopters for the navy's shipborne operations.

The European plane maker didn't disclose financial details for the order.

The new helicopters are set to replace the German navy's Sea Lynx Mk88A fleet, which entered service in 1981.
