It is built by the Eurocopter Group (since July 10, 2000 member of EADS), owned 70% by Aérospatiale France and 30% by Daimler Aerospace (DASA) of Germany. The military version of the Bo-105 include the antitank version with weapon-carrying outriggers and the scout version which has a mast-mounted sight above the main rotor.
