Amercom Helicopters of the World ACHY39
Westland Puma HC.Mk 1 Diecast Model
RAF No.33 Sqn, XW207, Kuwait, Operation Desert Storm, 1991

1:72 Scale   Length   Width
Westland Puma HC.Mk 1   10"   8.25"

By the time of the 1991 Gulf War conflict, the Puma HC.1 had already been in service with the RAF for 20 years and had proven to be a capable and effective medium lift helicopter, seeing active service in Northern Ireland and in humanitarian roles such as the 1988 Jamaican flash flood. It was the 1991 Gulf Conflict that brought Pumas fully to war. They played a vital role in moving British troops across Kuwait during the defeat of Iraqi forces and at the climax of the conflict, proved decisive in rapidly mobilising and deploying troops preventing Iraqi forces from sabotaging the Rumaila oil field. The Pumas were painted in a water based sand colour which rapidly weathered leaving them in a distinctive shade of pink.

Westland Puma HC.Mk 1

Designed as a British-built version of the Aerospatiale Puma, the Westland Puma was first flown on November 25th, 1970.
