The upgrade has seen the aircraft fitted with more powerful engines common to the forthcoming AW159 Lynx Wildcat giving better hot and high performance and a payload increase of more than a tonne.
Other improvements include new avionics and digital displays, a stronger transmission, an enhanced rear fuselage structure and enhanced electronic warfare self protection systems.
The first aircraft are expected to be operationally deployed in the second quarter.
