The updated AW-159 Lynx was the last candidate to be removed from the competition.
The current Lynx helicopters were recieved starting in 1980. First a batch of 8 Mk.80's and to raplace to that had crashed, the Naval Air Service recieved 2 Mk.87's in 1987, originally destined for Argentina.
All the helicopters recieved a new airframe and was upgraded to Super Lynx Mk.90B status 10-12 years ago
Denmark expects to receive the first of the new helicopters in 2016, so the Navy can provide an even more effective action both nationally and internationally.
Seahawk is purchased as a shelf. This means that the helicopter already in service in another NATO country. It is a good opportunity for collaboration with other users, for example in relation to logistics, training and future updates of the helicopter.
