The EH101 Merlin is a multipurpose, adaptable helicopter that may be used in both military and civilian settings. The EH101 Merlin is used by the Italian Navy for a variety of maritime tasks, such as utility transport, anti-submarine warfare, and search and rescue (SAR).
In 2021 the Italian Navy also took part at the airshow with an SH-90A helicopter also on static display.
