Go to the military databases at http://www.scramble.nl Pick the French Air Force. In the Code box, enter SD and click the right arrow to do the search. You will get:

Serial: 2626
Code: SD
Type: EC725
CN: 2626
Unit: EH01.067
Status: act
First: jun06
Last: jun06

The Type line tells you that it is a Eurocopter EC-725 Cougar MkII+
