1. Уестленд Линкс is a British multi-purpose military helicopter designed and built by Westland Helicopters at its factory in Yeovil. Originally intended as a utility craft for both civil and naval usage, military interest led to the development of both battlefield and naval variants. The Lynx went into operational usage in 1977 and was later adopted by the armed forces of over a dozen nations, primarily serving in the battlefield utility, anti-armour, search and rescue and anti-submarine warfare roles.

The Westland Lynx is a versatile and agile military helicopter that can perform various missions in different environments. It was developed by Westland Helicopters in collaboration with Aérospatiale, and first flew in 1971. It has a twin-engine design and a four-bladed rotor system that gives it high speed and maneuverability. The Lynx has set several world records for helicopters, including the fastest speed over 15 and 25 km, and the fastest 100 km closed circuit.
The Lynx has been adopted by many countries for different roles, such as anti-submarine warfare, anti-tank warfare, search and rescue, reconnaissance, and transport. It can carry various weapons and sensors, depending on the mission and configuration. The Lynx can also operate from ships and small landing pads, making it suitable for naval operations. The Lynx has seen combat action in several conflicts, such as the Falklands War, the Gulf War, the Iraq War, and the War in Afghanistan.
The Lynx is still in service with some operators, but it is being replaced by a modernized variant called the AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat. The Wildcat has improved performance, avionics, and survivability features. The Wildcat is expected to serve well into the 21st century as a multi-role combat helicopter.
