    Dutch complete Chinook mission in Mali

    The Netherlands’ last of three Boeing CH-47D Chinook transport helicopters deployed in support of the UN Multidimensional Integrated Stabilisation Mission in Mali (MINUSMA) will return to Europe in mid-April, with the German army having assumed the role using NH Industries NH90s.

    On 23 March, the second Dutch Chinook was returned to Gilze Rijen air base aboard a Boeing C-17 strategic transport of the NATO Strategic Airlift Capability unit. The remaining example will arrive at Woensdrecht air base in mid-April to undergo scheduled maintenance.

    The Dutch military says its Defence Helicopter Command’s Chinooks accumulated 2,550 flying hours in support of the MINUSMA mission, performing transport duties and medical evacuation services. The nation’s personnel completed 12 detachments in Mali over a period of two-and-a-half years.

    India's Hindustan Aeronautics offers performance guarantee for new helos

    "PBL guarantee will ensure that the operational fleet availability improves from 60 percent to at least 75 percent," according to a senior HAL executive.

    The PBL forms part of a $1.23 billion contract from March 30 for the sale of Dhruv helicopters. However, the PBL has been guaranteed only for the 16 helicopters reserved for the Indian Coast Guard and not for the remaining 16 helicopters set aside for the Indian Air Force.

    What sort of speed would these helicopters have? I like the armed version as it could possibly replace the Apache when the time comes.

    The final requirements would probably only emerge closer to actual program start but broadly they are looking at a 2X increase in combat range and 2X increase in cruise speed compared to the crafts they intend on replacing (Apache is one of them). A trade space of around 240-300 Knots has been mentioned in the past for the program.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westland_Lynx

    On 11 August 1986 the helicopter was piloted by Trevor Egginton when it set an absolute speed record for helicopters over a 15 and 25 km course by reaching 400.87 kilometres per hour (216.45 kn; 249.09 mph);[2][12] an official record with the FAI it currently holds.[2][13] At this speed, it had a lift-to-drag ratio of 2,[14] and its BERP blade tips had a speed of Mach 0.97.[15]

    Has the record breaking technology used in the special Lynx been used a anywhere else...or is it the helicopter equivalent of the ME-209?
    There are two sides to every story. The truth is usually somewhere between the two.

    I believe the production variant was limited to 324kph, which still makes the list linked. The Wildcat is also similarly fast. Presumably the same tech.
