UK MOD investment in helicopter fleet upgrade


In the past 12 months, the Puma Mk2, Merlin Mk2, Chinook Mk6, and both the Royal Navy and British Army Wildcats, have all been declared ready for operational use.

As a result, UK forces now have new military capabilities that can be deployed around the world. The Merlin Mk2 is currently delivering vital support in Sierra Leone to tackle the spread of Ebola; the Puma Mk2 is preparing to contribute to NATO’s training and assistance mission in Afghanistan; and the Royal Navy Wildcat is deploying for global maritime operations.
