How To Build A Wildcat Helicopter

In an exclusive report, Forces TV was there as Britain's last Wildcat was put together by Leonardo Helicopters in Yeovil.
 
The Wildcat is The Fleet Air Arm, and Army Air Corps', newest aircraft.
 
An entirely new helicopter, the wildcat is being flown by the Royal Navy as a maritime attack helicopter and by the British Army as a light combat aircraft.
 
The Wildcat has already proved its capability in extreme climates from the desert to the arctic.
 
It's expected to prove its capability further in the future with tasks on the battlefield including reconnaissance, force protection and maritime warfare.
