Royal Navy Lynx Attack and Anti Submarine Helicopters

Primarily an anti-surface and anti-submarine helicopter designed to operate from frigates and destroyers of the Fleet, this fast and capable aircraft has recently been updated to the Mk8 standard, which is now in service throughout the Fleet. The aircraft is being fitted with a very advanced Central Tactical System and Passive Identification Device in addition to the equipment currently fitted. Each independent flight comprises a pilot, an observer and a team of 7 maintainers. They embark in their ship whenever it sails. Able to fire the Sea Skua anti-surface missile, which proved highly effective during the Gulf war, the Lynx forms an integral part of the ships detection and weapon system and can project the influence of a ship over great distances with the key element of surprise. In addition to the Sea Skua the Lynx has the Sting Ray torpedo and the older technology, but nevertheless most effective depth charge for anti-submarine warfare. The aircraft may also be fitted with a machine gun pod. The home base for all seaborne Lynx is the Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton in Somerset.

A second variant of the Lynx is in service with the Royal Navy. The attack/utility version is operated in support of the Royal Marines in conjunction with the Commando Sea King. It fires the TOW anti-armour missile and gives an autonomous and flexible response against tanks and armoured personnel carriers to the Land Force Commander during Amphibious Operations.
