laughingly their Fleet Air Arm operated handful of Scouts
few decades ago to support oceanographic vessels.

Our Navy (RNZN) also had the Wasp for sometime up until the late 90's. When they were replaced with the SH-2G Sea Sprite, some ships had to go without helos like HMNZS Endevour since their decks and facilities were only ever designed to support the Wasps. On a side note, now we also have the SG-2g(I) Sea Sprite that all key allies/coalition partners have gotten rid of and running a very small fleet of the bespoke (I) model. That can only turn out well...
