Pumas to be upgraded

The RAFs Puma HC1 fleet is to be upgraded and life extended in a £300 million contract. The upgraded Pumas will have new engines (Turbomeca Makila) and avionics (glass cockpit, various new systems) to take them into the early 2020s with a plan to replace it with the Future Medium Helicopter in 2022.
