    united kingdom Army Air Corps

    Del'd: 50 - 1964 to 1978

    First batch of 50 airframes for the UK Army Air Corps were Agusta Bell 47G-3B-1, known as the Sioux AH.1 in service and ordered on 20 Mar 1964. Built by Costruzioni Aeronautiche Giovanni Agusta SpA in  Gallerate, deliveries were from Jun 1964 and initial maintenance difficulties (of these and the Westland supplied models) were largely overcome in AAC service by Jul 1965.
    The first 5 Sioux for the AAC in the Far East arrived in Singapore in Feb 1965 for 656 Sq and its Flights, before the first British built airframes were available.
