1978





The Qatari Police become the opnly export customer for the Army Battlefield Lynx when they purchased three Lynx HC.28 helicopters in 197?. These aircraft were broadly similar to the AH.1, but with sand filters fitted to the engine intakes. In 1987 the Qatari Police traded its three HC.28s for three gunships equipped with a FLIR turret and the twin 7.62mm turret. Seats for four men were added in the back. Only searchlights, gun pods or rocket pods could be fitted to the stub wings. Weather radar was added to the nose in place of the Blue Kestrel.
