Lynx Army Air Corps

History of this Model in this Organisation:

1977: 112 AH.1, most converted to AH.7
1985: 13 AH.7 plus conversions
1990: 16 AH.9 plus conversions
2008: AH.9A
2009: AgustaWestland AW.159 Wildcat

16 new airframes AH.9 ordered from Westland in Apr 1988, with plans to modify 8 from the AH.1 / AH.7 fleet, the total number was eventually reduced to 22.

Under a £70M urgent operational requirement to improve hot and high performance and reliability in the Afghan Theatre, 12 Army Lynx AH.9 are being re-engined with the LHTEC CTS800-4N engine, to be used in the Lynx Wildcat programme. By end of Apr 2009, 4 of the 12 were on the Westland line at Yeovil and will be known as the Lynx AH.9A. All 12 airframes are due by Nov 2010. On completion, a decision will be made whether to address the other 10 Army Lynx AH.9.
