The Aérospatiale Alouette II, designated as SA 313 or SA 318, is a lightweight helicopter originally manufactured by Sud Aviation and later acquired by Aérospatiale. The Alouette II was conceived based on the existing project, the SE 3120 Alouette, which, despite its promising design, was deemed overly intricate for success in the market. Equipped with a Turbomeca Artouste turbine engine, the Alouette II marked a significant milestone as the first rotorcraft powered by a gas turbine powerplant, deviating from the conventional, heavier piston engine and even achieving a new altitude record in the light helicopter category. The Alouette II gained popularity in military operations, encompassing roles such as observation, air-sea rescue, photography, liaison, and training.
