Brazil to receive first modernised Super Lynx helicopters

17 January 2019

The Brazilian Navy will receive the first two upgraded AgustaWestland Super Lynx AH-11B naval helicopters in February, the service told Jane's on 16 January.

Leonardo Helicopters is modernising eight Super Lynx AH-11As under a June 2014 contract issued by the Brazilian Navy Aeronautical Directorate (DAerM) for about EUR117 million (USD113 million).

The initial three helicopters were due for delivery in 2018 but were postponed due to the management of the programme by Leonardo Helicopters, the navy said.

Another two modernised helicopters are due for delivery later in 2019, with deliveries to be complete in 2022.
