BACKGROUND

The Lynx is a popular helicopter with multiple models in use; the latest being the Super Lynx. An upgrade package for the Super Lynx, known as the Super Lynx 300 is planned soon. The Lynx is a multi-role helicopter for Anti-Surface Warfare, Anti-Submarine Warfare, search and rescue and utility operations. Over 200 naval Lynx helicopters are operational with eleven navies and are battle proven in two major conflicts (Falklands & the Gulf Wars). Over 200 Lynx scout/attack helicopters (Mark 7 & 9), have also been produced. The UK Royal Navy is equipped with the Lynx Mark 8 helicopters whereas the British Army fields Mk 7 and Mk 9 Lynx Scout/Attack helicopters, which are identical in every way except for the chin radome and weapons layout.

The Lynx is capable of operating in every environment as the Lynx's engines are fully marinised engines for operation in harsh erosive and corrosive environments, from desert and tropical conditions to freezing and arctic environments. The Lynx airframe is constructed of a composite of light alloys. The helicopter also features a non-retractable tricycle-type landing gear is designed for the helicopter to operate from small ships in State 6 Sea's and features oleo-pneumatic struts which absorb the shock of a 6ft/s descent rate.
