Royal Navy Wildcat

The Wildcat might look like its predecessor - and possess many of its characteristics of the Lynx, but it is very much a new more capable helicopter. The main visual difference is a redesigned tail, which allows for a more powerful tail rotor system, combined with new engines which are considerably more powerful. 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, and a 360˚ full-colour surveillance radar, helps crews pick out targets and if necessary, engage them with two new missiles systems specifically being developed for use on the aircraft.
