Westland Wasp 1960s Anti-Submarine Helicopter
 
Superb action of this unusual heli in action at a recent big scale event I attended. Nice detail on this one and flown well by its owner.


The Westland Wasp was a small 1960s British turbine powered, shipboard anti-submarine helicopter. Produced by Westland Helicopters, it came from the same P.531 programme as the British Army Westland Scout, and was based on the earlier piston-engined Saunders-Roe Skeeter. It fulfilled the requirement of the Royal Navy for a helicopter small enough to land on the deck of a frigate and carry a useful load of two homing torpedoes.

The Wasp sunk one ship in combat, seriously damaging the ARA Santa Fe submarine in 1982 during the Falklands war.
