Overview
-

When introduced in 1978, the Westland Lynx constituted a massive improvement over the helicopters then in service with the French Navy for antisubmarine duties and quickly became a highly popular rotorcraft. From an asset specializing in antisubmarine warfare, it was soon turned into a multirole platform that proved incredibly versatile, performing an extremely wide range of roles. However, after more than 40 years in service, the Lynx was an aging design, and in August 2020, it was withdrawn from Aéronautique Navale service. Containing over 200 full-color images, this book charts the final year in French service of this much-loved machine.
