AgustaWestland Lynx

Lynx HMA8 (SRU)


SRU = SATURN. Second-generation Anti-jam Tactical UHF Radio used by NATO Radio Upgrade. All surving DAS aircraft were modified and included SIFF (Upgraded IFF). Later the aircraft were part of a Combined Mods Programme which gave them improved communications and defensive systems. As this went on the HMA.8(SRU) helicopters modified were known as HMA8(CMP) until the last one was finished and then they were then all known as HMA8(SRU) aircraft again.
