Westland Lynx WG-13 AH7
- XZ221 (Army Air Corps) (1:72 scale)
- The Westland Lynx was designed & built by Westland Helicopters at its factory in Yeovil. Both battlefield & naval variants were developed, which went into operational usage in 1977 & were later adopted by the armed forces of over a dozen nations, where it primarily serves in the battlefield utility, search & rescue & anti-submarine warfare roles. The initial design (then known as the Westland WG.13) was started in the mid-1960s, with the Lynx making its first flight on 21st March 1971. In 1972, a Lynx broke the world record over 15 & 25km by flying at 321.74 km/h. It also set a new 100km closed circuit record shortly afterwards flying at 318.504 km/h. In 1986, a Lynx specially modified with BERP (British Experimental Rotor Programme) rotor blades, registered G-LYNX & piloted by Trevor Egginton set an absolute speed record for helicopters over a 15 & 25km course by reaching 400.87 km/h. The British Army ordered 100 Lynx AH (Army Helicopter) Mk.1 for various roles, including tactical transport, armed escort, anti-tank warfare (with eight TOW missiles) reconnaissance & evacuation.
