Type 42 Helicopter Landings?


War Hero
On HMS Cardiff during our first deployment we had an Army Puma land on the flight deck out in Belize and that was a tight fit. So if the Merlin is bigger than that (I left before they came into service), I would doubt it could get on the deck of even a stretched 42.
Yes we also had an Army Puma land on FD of the Newcastle when we were off Belize.
