AGUSTAWESTLAND AW149

A new type to the Air Tattoo this year is the AgustaWestland AW149 medium-category battlefield support helicopter, being exhibited in the static display by its Anglo-Italian manufacturer. It is a larger and more powerful version of the earlier AW139, power coming from a pair of General Electric CT7-2E1 turboshafts. The AW149's first flight took place in 2009. It is intended for various missions including battlefield support, troop and materiel transport, medical evacuation, search and rescue, command and control, and many more. The type is yet to receive a production order. A civilian version is designated as the AW189.
