AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat HMA.2 (ZZ529) from the Royal Navy at the RIAT 2019, RAF Fairford (United Kingdom)

The AgustaWestland AW159 Wildcat (previously called the Future Lynx and Lynx Wildcat) is an improved version of the Westland Super Lynx military helicopter designed to serve in the battlefield utility, search and rescue and anti-surface warfare roles. In British service, common variants are being operated by both the Royal Navy and British Army, having replaced their Lynx Mk.7/8/9 predecessors. The AW159 has also been offered to several export customers, and been ordered by the Republic of Korea Navy and the Philippine Navy. The Wildcat HMA.2 (Helicopter, Maritime Attack)
was initial a maritime model, a total of 28 ordered for the Royal Navy.

The Wildcat might look like its predecessor - and possess many of its characteristics, but it is leaps ahead in many ways. The engines are considerably more powerful providing much improved performance when operating in hot environments and at high altitudes. A completely redesigned tail, which is the greatest visual difference between old and new, also allows for a more powerful tail rotor system, as well as improving the aircrafts strength and stealth qualities with its 'diamond' profile. Aircrew also enjoy a much-improved cabin, from state-of-the-art cockpit instruments, hi-tech communications, to crash worthy armoured seats which drastically enhance survivability in the event of a crash landing.
Cutting-edge targeting systems, similar to the Apache, and a 360˚ full-colour surveillance radar, helps crews pick out targets and if necessary engage them with two new missiles systems specifically being developed for use on the aircraft.

The Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) is the world's largest military air show, held annually over the third weekend in July,
usually at RAF Fairford in Gloucestershire, England in support of The Royal Air Force Charitable Trust.
The show typically attracts a total of 150.000 to 160.000 spectators over the weekend.
