The Lynx is a British multi-role helicopter used primarily for military purposes. It operates worldwide. Built by Westland Helicopters the Lynx undertook its maiden flight 1971 and has taken part in all British military conflicts since 1982. Due to its high reliability, performance and versatility, it is in service in 14 countries. The Sea Lynx has been in service with MFG 3 (Naval Aviation Squadron) Graf Zeppelin in Nordholz since 1981. Its equipment and weapons are designed for anti-submarine warfare and extend the eyes and arms of the Frigates. Its armament consists of two torpedoes or Sea Skua missiles and a 12.7 mm machine gun.
