The Royal Navy and Marina Militare Italians tasked EHI to develop a new shipborne helicopter. The two Navies defined a common set of requirements related to the basic common helicopter plus a dedicated different set for each specific mission. Concurrently EHI made an autonomous research on the potential EH 101 Civil and Utility Market. Through those analysis EHI came to the conclusion that a common basic helo could satisfy all the amalgamated requirements even if the basic roles were sometimes very different. Following is the exposition of the rationale and the trade off approach which was successfully devised and implemented to the aim of producing a multivariant AC with the best compromise of a performance and cost.
