History

The eight survivors of the original Danish Lynx fleet were rebuilt to Super Lynx Mk.90B standard 2000-2004, under a contract signed with Westland in December 1997. The rebuild used a new fuselage but retained the (overhauled) existing systems. S-191 and S-170 were rebuilt at Westland, while the remainder were rebuilt at Vaerlose AB in the Navy workshop. Used for shipboard patrol/SAR duties.
