U.K. Chinook Plans Coalesce
The future of the U.K.’s heavy-lift rotary force is further taking shape with the Julius cockpit upgrade heading toward its first flight and a follow-on deal for 24 more CH-47s possible by year-end.
The Julius cockpit is also believed to be the configuration baseline for the additional Chinook order.
The additional 24 helicopters will be designated as Chinook Mk6s in Royal Air Force Service. Those undergoing the Julius upgrade will be known as Mk4s.
