The Canadian Forces variant of the B412 is a multi-role helicopter similar to the Huey family. It fits in a variety of roles including aerial firepower, reconnaissance, search and rescue, and aero-mobility tasks. The Griffon has the ability to carry up to 10 fully equipped troops, although there are 13 seats, the weight of fully equipped personnel normally weighs more than the safe rating.
The Griffon has existed in the CAF since 1995 and has taken part in nearly all operations since then. The operations with Griffon involvement include Haiti, Balkans, Afghanistan, etc.
