    Built by Westland at Yeovil (up to XZ337, c/n 1677) and Weston-super-Mare (XZ338, c/n 1682 onwards).
    Also used by Royal Marines.
    On July 2016 was announced that the current 34 AAC Gazelles AH.1 ( 19 in use and 15 in routine maintenance ) will remain in service until 2025 under new support contracts to be signed with Cobham Aviation Services, Airbus Helicopters, Leonardo Helicopters and Safran Helicopter Engines.

    I was a member of an Air Sqn namely 16/5l ,with this aircraft nos xx384 to xx389. From 29 june 1976 flew one back as nav to wolfenbuttel from b/Kelly , N.Ireland. Dont understand why AAC do not recognise us, as were attached to 653 Sqn and 657 Sqn AAC.
    I also served at Wolfenbuttel with these Gazelles. The REGN nos were xx384, xx386 and xx388.
