UK Mulls Puma Replacement Plans
The UK operates an aging fleet of Puma support helicopters rapidly approaching the end of their service lives.
Leonardo is offering the AW149 medium utility transport to the RAF as its new medium support helicopter. Attributes include a high-sink rate undercarriage, 50-minute “run-dry” main gearbox, four-axis autopilot, and large cabin doors for loading cargo and rapid ingress/egress. (Photo: Leonardo)
