Since the mission began January 30, 2013, the Tigers flew 260 missions, clocking around 1,860 hours supporting NATO ground troops, Afghan seccurity forces, and humanitarian relief operations after floods. Shows of force by the Tigers sufficed to overcome threats, according to the Bundeswehr.
The helicopters are scheduled to return to Germany in August.
