Super Lynx 300

The Super Lynx 300 Anti-submarine Warfare (ASW) and Anti-surface Warfare (ASuW) is the latest generation of the world leading multi-role, multi-mission Maritime and Utility Helicopter.  The Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW (SL300 ASW/ASuW) continues the heritage of the Lynx family of helicopters that have successfully met the demanding operational requirements of nations both in the maritime and land environments. Designed from concept to operate from single spot ships day and night in the harshest conditions, the platform benefits from a fully marinised airframe and low centre of gravity to afford exceptional deck stability and operational availability. The Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW pilot can also use negative main rotor blade pitch and deck lock (Harpoon) to enhance the security of the helicopter on deck during poor weather conditions and high sea states.  Main rotor blades and tail cone can be folded to reduce the aircraft footprint for stowage in a ship hangars. The superb twin LHTEC CT800 engines provide excellent ‘hot and high’ performance and increased safety single engines capability for ship borne operations.  A ruggedized aircraft, optimised for the harsh maritime environment and ship borne operations, the Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW is the choice platform for operating from small ships where flight deck and hangar space are at a premium. With a fully Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible cockpit and integrated avionics suite the Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW delivers a day/night all weather capability. The Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW now delivers additional mission capability with the introduction of underwater sensors; the configuration may be tailored from a wide range of optional mission equipment to maximise its performance for Tactical (find, fix and strike), Search and Rescue (SAR) or Utility support missions.
The multi-role design, comprehensive avionic and mission sensors, and unique ability to operate day or night in adverse weather conditions from small ships, the SL300 ASW/ASuW provides maritime commanders the capability to project power.  The SL300 ASW/ASuW is capable of autonomous operation in detecting and prosecuting targets with a range of deployable surface and sub-surface armaments against potential threats.
The SL300 ASW/ASuW has the capability to operate in Utility, Reconnaissance and Support roles. Large cabin and multi-role flexibility affords air mobility over sea, littoral and land environments, a range of role equipments to reconfigure to respond to theatre dynamics. The SL300 ASW/ASuW provides true multi-role versatility from casualty evacuation and logistics through to specialist team insertion (military interdiction) and counter terrorism missions.
