Bonjour
On va parler Hélico
Des merlins HM2 AEW de la RNavy
Radar Crowsnest de chez Thales (c'est une mise à jour du Searchwater si je comprends tout)

Arrivera après le mise au rencart des Sea King qui font actuellement le job : fin de service 2018, entrée en service opérationnel des Merlin 2020 (q2)

bonne journée

The move follows selection of the Thales radar system in May 2015, and an assessment phase that cost £24 million ($29 million) and was completed last year. For Crowsnest, Thales is updating the Searchwater radar and Cerberus mission system that is currently fitted to seven Sea King Mk7 helicopters that perform the Airborne Surveillance and Control (ASaC) mission. The Sea Kings are being retired next year, but the replacement will not enter service for training until 2019, with initial operating capability to follow in the second quarter of 2020. The MoD is procuring 10 Crowsnest systems, and the entire Merlin HM.2 fleet will be modified to accept them.
