FIRST PRODUCTION EH101 READY FOR ASW PACKAGE
E.H. Industries has rolled out the first production EH101 helicopter, which now will be fitted with an antisubmarine warfare mission equipment package developed by Loral prior to delivery to the Royal Navy in 1998.
The aircraft, which rolled out last week at GKN Westland's facility here, is the first of 44 on order by the British Royal Navy. A total of 82 of the three-engine aircraft, developed under a joint venture between Westland and Agusta of Italy, have been ordered.
