Following on from the "does the RAF need a bomber" thread, what features would the army like in a helicopter? It has been mentioned many times, that there is a desperate shortage of helicopters available to the army for current ops. If we were to get more helos, what should they be and/or what should the capabilities be? I do not want to lead the answer but it has been suggested that the lynx is a little too small. How big should this type of helicopter be? I would assume that large transport helos would be CH47 or EH101, just more of them. - How many more? Ski.
