Royal Air Force RAF Merlin Hc3 Medium Support Helicopters
The Merlin HC3 is the first of the next generation of medium support helicopters for the RAF. Twenty-two of the aircraft have been delivered and all serve with No 28 Squadron at RAF Benson. The aircraft can be armed with two general purpose machine guns mounted in port and starboard cabin windows, and can be equipped with a wide variety of role equipment, including a rescue hoist and a roller floor to assist loading cargo via the rear ramp The Merlin will be the first British military helicopter which can be equipped with an air-to-air refuelling probe to greatly increase the aircraft's range and reduce deployment times. An active vibration damping system reduces the level of noise and vibration inside the cabin to a similar level to turboprop aircraft, reducing crew and passenger fatigue and increasing airframe life. Merlins of No 28 Squadron deployed on their first operational tour - to the Balkans in support of UN Forces - in the Spring of 2003. Armament Two general purpose machine guns mounted in port and starboard cabin windows. Role = Support Helicopter (SH). The movement of troops, weapons, ammunition and support stores in and around the battlefield. Casualty Evacuation (Casevac). Removal of casualties and medical emergencies from forward areas.
