BAE 146 is a quiet but rugged aircraft, with a high level of built-in redundancy. It can carry many of its own spares, allowing it to operate for long periods away from base, with little or no external support. The aircraft has excellent short-field performance and its ability to operate from high or unprepared airfields in missile threat areas means that the aircraft is extremely versatile.

The Puma HC.Mk 2 is a medium support helicopter. The aircraft is used in a variety of combat roles, including the tactical movement of troops, weapons, ammunition and stores on the battlefield, as well as the extraction of casu-alties. It is also employed during non-combatant evacuations, and humanitarian and disaster relief operations. The aircraft is capable of carrying 16 passengers, 12 fully equipped troops or up to 2 tonnes of freight, the latter moved as internal cargo or underslung, or a mix of the two. It can also be fitted with up to six stretchers for operations in the casual-ty evacuation or medical emergency re-sponse team role.

The Defender is a versatile military asset. With an airframe designed to be easily modifiable, the Defender can be used for a variety of roles including: counter terrorism, border patrol, maritime surveillance, policing and urban surveillance, search and rescue, air ambulance and transportation. The Defender can also act as a targeting system for long range weapons and land based vehicles. A sliding door, ten parachutists and a jump master can easily be accommodated if the aircraft is required for training military personnel, and has unbeatable through life costs. The design allows for exceptional low-speed handling and manoeuvring capabilities, permitting the aircraft to almost hang in the air. Its 70-90 knot speed enables continuous tight turns during low level observation, inspection and photography. It is fitted with durable and fuel efficient Rolls Royce Allison engines, 250-B17F flat-rated at 400hp with 200amp generators. Its basic transit speed is 160 knots.

C-130J has four Allison AE turboprop engines with Dowty Aerospace six-bladed composite propellers. Coupled with a new Full Authority Digital Engine-Control (FADEC) system, this gives the C-130J increased take-off thrust and better fuel efficiency. The aircraft also has a revised flight deck with modern glass cockpit and head-up displays, allowing a two pilot flight deck operation. The cockpit of the aircraft is fully night-vision compatible with the use of night-vision goggles. The aircraft has been cleared for wider use in the tactical role.

A rospatiale Gazelle was first produced in 1968 under an Anglo-French agreement between Westlands and A rospatiale . It was designed by Sud Aviation, later A rospatiale, and manufactured in France and the UK. Although it only has one engine, its lightweight chassis gives advantages in its small agile nature and its unparalleled visibility from the cockpit. Commonly used for light transport, scouting and light attack duties. It is powered by a Turbomeca Astazou turbine engine and it was the first helicopter to feature a fenestron tail instead of a conventional tail rotor. Since being introduced to service in 1973, the Gazelle has been procured and operated by the British Army, the French Army and several export customers.
