Wilds Cat joins NATO Exercise Trident Juncture

Pictured iss Lynx WildCat.
Wildcat is the latest generation of multi role helicopter specifically procured to operate from the Frigates and Destroyers of the Royal Navy.
The Lynx Wildcat (rather than just plain Wildcat to avoid confusion with the legendary WW2 Naval fighter) might look like its predecessor and possess many of its outstanding characteristics, but it will be leaps ahead in so many ways.
The engines are considerably more powerful providing much improved performance when operating in hot environments and at high altitudes.
A completely redesigned tail, which is the greatest visual difference between old and new, also allows for a more powerful tail rotor system, as well as improving the aircrafts strength and stealth qualities with its diamond profile.
Aircrew also enjoy a much-improved cabin, from state-of-the-art cockpit instruments, hi-tech communications, to crash worthy armoured seats which drastically enhance survivability in the event of a crash landing.
Cutting-edge targeting systems, similar to the Apache gunship, and a 360 full-colour surveillance radar, will help crew pick out their prey and if necessary engage them with two new missiles systems specifically being developed for use on the aircraft.
Wildcat will, like its predecessor, be earmarked for a variety of roles anti-ship, anti-submarine, ship protection, casualty evacuation, battlefield reconnaissance and general utility, but it will bear the suffix HMA, which stands for Helicopter Maritime Attack
