Aircraft

Flight Deck

The flight-deck runs the full length of the ship. Spots for 5 helicopters are marked out, and two(?) deck lifts provide access to the hangar deck directly below the main deck.

Air Unit

A normal air group of 12 Sea King HC.4 medium-lift helicopters and 6 Lynx AH.7 utility/anti-tank helicopters is provided. The ship can also accommodate Merlin, Chinook or Apache helicopters. It could transport (but not operate) up to 15 Harrier V/STOL jets. The lack of a ski-jump prevents Harrier operation.

Specification

To be added.
