Title: Westland Scout & Wasp

Developed initially by Saunders-Roe as the P-531, the helicopter was placed in production by Westlands who took over Saunders -Roe in 1959. This five-seat utility helicopter was ordered for the British Army as the Scout AH.1, entering service in 1963, a total of 150 being built. A variant was built for the Royal Navy for shipboard anti-submarine duties as the Wasp HAS.1. This featured quadricycle landing-gear, and folding main rotor blades and tail section to facilitate shipboard stowage. 98 were built for the Royal Navy and small numbers were supplied to the Navies of Brazil, The Netherlands, New Zealand and South Africa.
