    Dragonfly HC.2

    1950










    3 Dragonfly HC.2 were initially ordered by the RAF and all were delivered in Mar 1950. These were based on the Navy Dragonfly HR.1 with composite main rotors but fitted with external stretcher litters for the CasEvac role. A flight of HC.2s was sent to Malaya for service trials. A fourth was delivered in Feb/Mar 1952. Although they saved lives in Malaya (see Operation Firedog), they proved underpowered and gave way to the improved Dragonfly HC4.
