Royal Navy Merlin Helicopter Featured 7 Aug 2012 Image

Royal Navy Merlin Helicopter

A Royal Navy Merlin helicopter taking part in an exercise over the south of England.
Merlin Mk1 the world's most potent submarine hunting helicopter. The Merlin Mk1 have been in service with the Fleet Air Arm since the late 1990s and, after thorough testing and evaluation, the helicopters have been on the front line since 2000.
Our job is to find and if necessary destroy enemy submarines using our state-of-the-art sonar buoys which we drop into the ocean and Sting Ray torpedoes. Beyond searching for submarines, we carry out traditional maritime helicopter duties: anti-piracy/drug-running patrols, surveillance and reconnaissance, search and rescue, and passenger and load transfers.
There are more than 40 Merlins in service with the Fleet Air Arm in training and front-line squadrons. Most of these are in the middle of a £750m upgrade to turn the Merlin Mk1 into the Merlin Mk2 which has more powerful computer systems and is easier for aircrew to operate.

Royal Navy Ship in Rough Weather

Type 45 destroyer HMS Dauntless cuts through rough weather in the South Atlantic during her deployment to the area.
HMS Dauntless, the second of the T45 Destroyers, joined the Fleet in November 2010, shortly after being the first of class to fire the new Sea Viper missile. Since then she has proved her capability helping to protect the USS Carrier Battle Group in Exercise Saxon Warrior as the American units approached the UK in May.
Reversing the tables she then crossed the pond in company with the Russian Destroyer Admiral Chabanenko to take part in FRUKUS 2011 the letters come from France, Russia, UK and US who make up the annual exercise.
While in the US she took the opportunity to find the warmest waters easily reachable without having to go through Suez to test the resilience of the T45 systems in hotter water
