The WY-55 Hellcat was initially designed and operated as a Multi-Role Utility Helicopter for the AAF forces. Surplus helicopters quickly found themselves pressed into use by Civilians, Poseidon and Police alike, not due to their multi-role nature but due to the fact every Hellcat came fitted with a powerful thermal imaging camera making them great for recon purposes.

Overview

The Hellcat initially was designed as a Multi-Role helicopter for the AAF carrying out transport and observation roles. Due to their sluggish nature they are outclassed by both the MH-9 and PO-30 for transportation and have found themselves the helicopter of choice for any recon or observation operations.

  • Roles:
    • Recon
    • Transport

Design

The Hellcat is a twin-engine helicopter with decent armour around the frame of the helicopter. The weight of the armour and extra engine has heavily reduced it manoeuvrability when compared to an MH-9 or PO-30 however the front based thermal imaging camera has more than made up for these drawbacks.

Features

  • Armouring across the air frame
  • Countermeasure launchers
  • Thermal Imaging Camera
