Aircraft Not Used
Royal Brunei Air Force

This page gives details of some of the aircraft types that were offered or promised to the Royal Brunei Air Force but not delivered, cancelled official orders, and types have been falsely reported as being in service.

British Aerospace Hawk Mk.100
During the mid 1990s, the RBAF was seriously interested in obtaining a squadron of Hawk 100 advanced jet trainers, but no order was actually signed.

British Aerospace Hawk Mk.200
The RBAF was also interested in a squadron of Hawk 200 light fighters in the mid 1990s but, again, no order was placed.

Agusta-Bell AB212
Three AB212s were reported in service with the RBAF. Probably confusion with the Bell 212 Twin Huey that was actually used.

CASA C.212 Aviocar
Eleven C.212s have been reported in service. None were actually delivered.

SIAI Marchetti SF.260TP Warrior
Four of the turbo-prop version of the SF.260 were reported in service. This is most likely a confusion with the SF.260W piston-engined version that was actually used.

Sikorsky S-55/H-19
Several sources give the first helicopter type operated by the Royal Brunei Malay Regiment as the Sikorsky S-55 – including the official history. These helicopters were actually Westland-built WS-55 Whirlwind Srs 3 examples. The WS-55 was a licence-built development of the S-55.

Sikorsky S-62
One S-62 is reported to have been used by the RBAF 1966-1967. None were actually used.
