    Del'd: 22 - 2009 to 2015






    In preparation for Lynx deployments to Afghanistan on Operation Herrick in the hot, high and dusty conditions, the Army Air Corps decided to upgrade the current Lynx AH.9 s to AH.9A standard. The upgrade consisted of a more powerful CTS800-4N engine (similar to that in the Wildcat), stronger airframe structure, a better communications system, more firepower and an advanced instrument and electronic fit.
