Sea King AEW.2 Falklands War helicopter kit 1/72 scale - Model Dragon.The Sea King AEW.2 is a variant of the Westland Sea King helicopter, modified to perform Airborne Early Warning (AEW) missions. This variant was developed rapidly during the Falklands War in 1982, in response to the Royal Navy's lack of AEW capabilities, which had proven to be a serious weakness during the conflict.Main Features of the Sea King AEW.2Role: Airborne Early Warning (AEW).Manufacturer: Westland Helicopters.User: Royal Navy (British Navy).History and DevelopmentBackground: During the Falklands War, the Royal Navy found itself without an effective AEW system after the withdrawal of the Fairey Gannet AEW.3. This gap was evident when the cruiser HMS Sheffield was hit by an Exocet missile.Solution: The need for an AEW capability led to the development of the Sea King AEW.2, equipped with Searchwater radar, installed in a side-mounted radome.Rapid Implementation: The Sea King AEW.2 was developed and commissioned in an extremely short time, with the first helicopters operational in the Falklands theater within a few months of conception.Technical SpecificationsRadar: Searchwater radar, used for long-range surveillance and detection of air and sea targets.Crew: Typically consisting of two pilots and one radar operator.Communication Systems: Advanced communication systems to coordinate operations with naval and air forces.Dimensions and PerformanceLength: Approximately 22 meters with main rotor.Rotor diameter: 18.90 meters.Maximum takeoff weight: About 9,707 kg.Maximum speed: About 208 km/h.Range: Up to 1,230 km.Operational use in the Falklands WarDuring the Falklands War, the Sea King AEW.2 played a crucial role in protecting the British fleet by providing early detection capabilities for incoming missiles and enemy aircraft. This capability enabled a more rapid and coordinated response to threats, significantly improving the fleet's air defense.Post-Falkland EvolutionAfter the conflict, the Sea King AEW.2 was further developed and modernized, leading to the Sea King ASaC.7 version with improvements in radar and electronic systems. These versions continued to serve in the Royal Navy until they were replaced by more advanced AEW systems, such as the Merlin Crowsnest helicopter.In summary, the Sea King AEW.2 represents a quick and effective response to a serious operational gap, demonstrating the importance of AEW capabilities in modern naval operations.

Fairey Rotodyne 1/72 - AIRFIX A04002V
SKU AX04002V
Brand AIRFIX
Scale: 1/72
Nation: United Kingdom
Period: Modern
Type: Elicotteri
Category Kit

Fairey Rotodyne Vintage Classics helicopter kit1/72 scale - Airfix model.The Fairey Rotodyne was an innovative British helicopter developed in the 1950s and 1960s by the Fairey Aviation Company. It was a hybrid aircraft, combining the features of a helicopter with those of an airplane. Its design was based on inclined rotor technology, which allowed it to make vertical takeoffs and landings like a helicopter, but also to fly at airplane-like speeds and altitudes.Here are some key features of the Fairey Rotodyne:Design: The Rotodyne featured an unusual design with two counter-rotating rotors mounted at the apex of a fixed wing. These rotors were tilted upward during horizontal flight to provide lift, but could be tilted up or down to allow vertical takeoffs and landings.Performance: The Rotodyne was designed to fly at relatively high speeds and at altitudes similar to those of an airplane, making it faster than a conventional helicopter. It could carry a significant number of passengers or cargo in a wide variety of roles, including civilian transport, military transport, and postal services.Engine: It was powered by a Napier Eland turbine engine, which provided the power needed to operate the rotors and propel the plane forward.Use: The Rotodyne was primarily intended to serve in the civil and commercial transport market, but was also considered for military service as a tactical transport aircraft or light attack helicopter.End of program: Despite promising features and successful early stages of development, the Rotodyne program was discontinued in 1962 due to financial and market problems, along with some safety and noise concerns. Despite its technical advances, the Rotodyne never entered large-scale production.In summary, the Fairey Rotodyne was an experimental helicopter that offered an innovative and promising design for air transport, but ultimately failed to achieve the commercial and military success that was expected.

The U.S. military began operating this base in 1963, initially as a communications radio station. The base later housed U.S. Marines, paratroopers and special operations forces, and an airstrip was built using steel plates for the M8A1 airfield.At one point, the airfield also housed U.S. Marine Corps aircraft and helicopters. Despite frequent attacks by the Viet Cong, the Phu Bai base remained operational by the U.S. military until late 1972.
