The AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat (previously called the Future Lynx and Lynx Wildcat) is an improved version of the Westland Super Lynx military helicopter designed to serve in the battlefield utility, search and rescue and anti-surface warfare roles. In British service, common variants are being operated by both the Royal Navy and British Army to replace their ageing Lynx Mk.7/8/9 rotorcraft. The AW159 has also been offered to several export customers, including orders by Republic of Korea Navy and the Philippine Navy.
Just as I had feared. And the Hiller, too?
@dapperdunn Which one are you in? The Mk 8 or the Wildcat?
In the Wildcat JFH. The CTS800-4N engines of the Wildcat, provide much greater power than the Gem in the Mk8.
? At Cambridge we used to have a MK5, MK6 and a MK8
Bigger bang for you @Sumo
In the "Cambridge" I work at we have C-130J, C-130H and C-130E
(Am reminded of a newspaper story of an American Indian visiting London in full redskin rig. There had been some previous newspaper publicity about the visit, and when a bright young thing spotted the Indian in Oxford Street she gushed: "How!"
His response, apparently, was: "Me know how. When?"
