  1. :!:
    Super Lynx has now been ordered for the forces! HURRAH! I know that the Super Lynx won't exactly be what everybody wants, but it's GOT to be an improvement over the Lynx.

    Opinions People!!!
     
  2. Is it like an ordinary lynx, but with a flashy cape and underpants on the outside?
     
  3. Bet it can leap a tall building in a single bound...

    oh wait...
     
  4. Does it disguise itself in any way? Will it be super lynx all the time, or just called Barry when not being super
     
  5. Used to call them a few things.

    Strangely though, never Barry.
     
  6. Did anyone else think this thread was about a new improved hygien product?
     
  7. Ah, chocolate frog, good point. May have a few BO troubled people wondering in here thinking they've found the solution to all there troubles! :)

    I know the Lynx had a lot of problems, having worked with them before, but surely this new SUPER lynx has none?

    Yeah, right...
     
  8. Is it a new concept? Is it really an update on the old one?

    OR..have the ministry been so astounded at how long the original lynx has managed to keep flying that they have nicknamed it SUPER????
     
  9. Remember asking some Westlands suit at the MW show in the eighties.

    Does it have tri-wings?

    Yes? Off to the beer tent.
     
  10. AF1771, Super Lynx is an updated Lynx. It gets all new avionics, engine upgrades, etc. But sadly it has the same, or very similar, airframe to the original, and as many will agree, it can get poky in the back of a lynx if you try to squeeze eight men into the back!

    No idea how it goes with regards flying, but apparently it's done well in trials etc. and it also has been purchased by countries like Oman and Indonesia.
     
  11. I heard it is a Mk1 lynx with go faster stripes, fluffy dice on the rear view mirror and they've raised the undercarrage. Apparently it has problems getting over speedbumps though. It also has a kicking ICE system.
     
  12. On a more childish level.......... Can they not make one with skids, they look far cooler than the Mk9 Wheelybins.
     
  13. or, skids with little wheels on? :)
