UK Army, Navy, Orders Future Lynx

Fri Jun 23, 2006 4:43 am

Though mooted since last year, it has been confirmed, with actual numbers and the split between the two user services, the procurement of the radically upgraded Future Lynx helicopter.

With new engines, avionics and a redesigned airframe, to be used by the RN to supplement the larger EH-101, for maritime use, with an emphasis on anti surface warfare-the RN EH-101's concentrate on anti sub, general surveillance.
The Army will use them in the light transport/scout role.
