Westland Sea King Mk7 (ASaC7) Helicopter

The Westland Sea King Mk7 came in to being after the last of the Royal Navy's conventional carriers, the Ark Royal was de-commissioned in December 1978, this made in no longer possible to fly the Fairey Gannet AEW 3 as the new Invincible-class aircraft carriers flight decks were to small for conventional fixed wing aircraft. When the Royal Navy suffered losses due to the lack of an AEW platform during the Falklands War, several Sea Kings were modified to fit the role. In 2002 the AEW helicopters were upgraded with Searchwater 2000AEW radar and initially re-designated the Sea King AEW7, now as the Sea King ASaC7 (Airborne Surveillance and Control Mk.7).
