For the first time at DSEi AgustaWestland will be exhibiting the new AW159 multi-role military helicopter now in production for the Royal Navy and British Army. The aircraft on display is the third production aircraft for the British Army.

Sixty two AW159s, to be known as the Lynx Wildcat in UK military service, are now being assembled at AgustaWestland’s Yeovil facility with the first aircraft set for delivery in 2012. The AW159 can be configured for a wide range of land and maritime roles and is fully marinised and designed for small ship operations.

The AgustaWestland AW159 Lynx Wildcat (previously called the Future Lynx) is an improved version of the Westland Super Lynx military helicopter. The AW159 will serve in the battlefield utility, search and rescue and anti-surface warfare roles. The helicopter has been ordered for the British Army and Royal Navy. It is to enter service with the Army in 2014 and with the RN in 2015.
