"The newest helicopter in the Royal Navy's arsenal came through its toughest test yet as it spent a fortnight taking part in Europe's biggest naval war games.

Wildcat – which will provide the aerial eyes and punch of the Royal Navy's frigates and destroyers for the next quarter of a century – joined HMS Dragon on Exercise Joint Warrior. It is the first time the helicopter – normally based at RNAS Yeovilton in Somerset with 700W Naval Air Squadron – has spent such a concerted time at sea, and the first time it has taken part in the exercise aboard a ship."
