The AgustaWestland AW101, also known as Merlin, and marketed as EH101 until 2007, is a medium-lift helicopter, developed by Westland Helicopters and Agusta in the 1980s. Due to the ever-improving Soviet submarine techology, the widely utilised Westland Sea King helicopters started proving insufficient in the defence forces. The UK Ministry of Defence was compelled to issue a requirement for a more modern ASW helicopter. Initially seeking to pursue separate plans, Westland and Agusta had subsequently began a discussion about the joint development of a new aircraft. Compared to previous models, the EH101 utilised more advanced technologies while maintaining the conventional design layout, and was made available with the Rolls-Royce Turbomeca RTM322 or General Electric CT7 engines. The first model flown in 1987, and went to production in 1999. The EH101 Helicopter is now used in medium-sized transport and utility applications, and is several countries as remains in use as anti-submarine warfare airforce.
