WESTLAND LYNX 1976 TO PRESENT


WESTLAND LYNX 1976 TO PRESENT

HAYNES PUBLISHING    Book Number: 91019    Product format: Hardback

A Haynes Owners' Workshop Manual covering HAS Mk.2, Mk.3 and HMA Mk.8 models, here is an insight into the design, construction, operation and maintenance of the Royal Navy's multi-role ship-borne helicopter. The design originated in the early 1960s initially for an Army battlefield helicopter. The Westland Lynx first entered service with the Royal Navy's Fleet Air Arm in 1976 ahead of its Army counterpart. Seeing action in major operations such as the Falklands War of 1982 and the Gulf War of 1991, the Lynx proved itself a versatile and capable all-rounder. The final Rolls Royce gem-powered version in the maritime role, the HMA Mk.8 is the focus of this book. It has achieved significant success in counter-narcotics, counter-piracy and humanitarian assistance roles in recent years. Having assumed the lead in developing the helicopter anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare concepts during WW2, the Royal Navy blazed a trail that other navies have followed. Many countries' frigates and destroyers are now equipped with variants of the ubiquitous Westland Lynx. Fascinating on the technical detail, the anatomy, the systems and weaponry, operation, maintenance and design features, the book is packed with more than 300 colour photographs and technical drawings. 164 very large pages.
