The Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW is the latest generation of the would leading multi role, multi mission maritime and utility aircraft from AgustaWestland. The aircraft is an evolution of the highly successful Lynx helicopter that, for more than 40 years has successfully met the demanding operational needs of 15 nations in both the maritime and land environments. This purpose built military aircraft with fully marinised airframe is designed with small ship operations in mind and benefits from a low centre of gravity, Blade and Tail fold together with excellent cross and tail wind operating envelopes. With its multi role design, comprehensive avionic and mission sensors, together with its unique ability to operate day or night in adverse weather conditions from corvettes size ships, the Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW provides maritime commanders with added capability in all operations. Suitably equipped the SL300 ASW/ASuW is capable of autonomous operation in detecting and prosecuting targets while the range of armaments deployable on the aircraft enables a flexible response to potential threats. The Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW has the capability to operate in the Utility, Reconnaissance and Support roles. Its large cabin and multi-role flexibility offers air mobility for over land and littoral operations, and with a range of role equipment is reconfigurable to respond to changing dynamics in theatre. The Super Lynx 300 ASW/ASuW offers true swing role versatility from casualty evacuation and logistics support through to specialist team insertion and counter-terrorism tasks.

Design
The Super Lynx is a multi-mission helicopter design with a side by side cockpit for pilot and observer. It features a large sliding crew door on each side giving access to the cabin which can be used to accommodate up to nine equipped troops dependent on seating configuration, or alternatively radio equipment when used in the command post role or surplus fuel for long journeys. Its twin Rolls-Royce Gem turboshaft engines power a four-blade semi-rigid main rotor system. The Lynx is an agile helicopter, capable of performing loops and rolls.
Avionics and sensors
With its fully Night Vision Goggle (NVG) compatible cockpit, integrated avionics suite, and wide selection of optional equipment, the Super Lynx 300 delivers a day/night, all weather capability for Tactical (Anti Sub-Marine, Anti Surface), Search And Rescue (SAR) or Utility support missions. The Super Lynx is equipped with 360° scan radar, either the BAE Systems Seaspray Mark 3000 or the Telephonics RDR 1500, mounted in the chin fairing under the nose. The Super Lynx is equipped with an AN/AQS-18 active dipping sonar from L-3 Communications. The operation of the dipping sonar is by a hydraulically powered winch and the automatic flight control system includes a cable hover mode control. The naval Lynx can be equipped with a magnetic anomaly detector. The Super Lynx be can be also equipped with a range of surveillance equipment including the Vipa 1 reconnaissance pod from Thales Optronics (Vinten) or the Agiflite reconnaissance camera.
Propulsion
The superb twin LHTEC CTS800 engines provide excellent hot and high performance and single engine capability, these ruggedized characteristics, optimisation for the harsh maritime environmental and ship-borne operations make it the number one choice when operating from small ships where Flight Deck and Hangar space are at a premium.
Armament
The Super Lynx can be armed with Sea Skua, an all-weather anti-ship missile developed by MBDA to provide medium- and long-range defence. Super Lynx can carry a range of depth charges, including the Mark 11 depth charges, and torpedoes, including the Mark 44, Mark 46, the A244S and the Stingray torpedoes.
