Description: Wildcat has been developed to meet the requirements for a dedicated small helicopter for deployment in both the land and maritime environments. This project will succeed the current Lynx helicopter fleet and the principal roles it undertakes, such as support to Land operations and in the role of ships' flights deployed on operations and other worldwide tasks. The timelines of the programme are aligned to the Out of Service Date of the current aircraft.
DCA (RAG) Amber
DCA text: The core aircraft programme is assessed as Green however, the interdependency with the Future Anti Surface Guided Weapon (FASGW) programme to deliver the full Attack capability required of the Naval variant is under review and has been decoupled from Wildcat delivery to prevent delays to IOC. The project overall remains Amber due to the linkage between Wildcat Helicopter Maritime Attack (HMA) and FASGW at Full Operating Capability (FOC). Work has been initiated to identify the potential to advance the FASGW (Light) capability and integration to go some way to addressing the shortfall.
