The Westland Lynx is a British multi-purpose military helicopter designed and built by Westland Helicopters at its factory in Yeovil. Originally intended as a utility craft for both civil and naval usage, military interest led to the development of both battlefield and naval variants. The Lynx went into operational usage in 1977 and was later adopted by the armed forces of over a dozen nations, primarily serving in the battlefield utility, anti-armour, search and rescue and anti-submarine warfare roles.

In 1978, the Brazilian Navy became the first foreign operator of the Lynx helicopter, having taken delivery of its first of a batch of five that year. During the 1990s, the fleet was more than doubled by the acquisition of a further batch of nine. During overseas deployments for multinational training exercises and United Nations operations, the Lynx has been described as "eyes and the ears of the fleet".

Westland AH-11 Lynx

Designed by Westland Helicopters as a utility craft for civil and naval applications, the Westland Lynx was first flown on March 21, 1971. Military interest in this versatile helicopter led to the development of both naval and battlefield variants, which were used in varying roles from transport and armed escort to evacuation, reconnaissance and anti-tank missions. The Lynx's four-blade main rotor system is powered by twin Rolls Royce engines, and it is capable of performing aerobatic maneuvers not commonly associated with helicopters, such as loops and rolls. In 1972, a Lynx broke the world airspeed record for helicopters, flying at nearly 200 mph.
