Finmeccanica AgustaWestland has signed a contract with the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD) valued at EUR 113 million (£90 million) to integrate, test and install the Future Anti-Surface Guided Weapon (FASGW) Heavy and Light missile systems onto 28 Royal Navy AW159 Wildcat helicopters.

The two missiles are the MBDA FASGW(Heavy)/ANL (Future Anti Surface Guided Weapon (Heavy)/ Anti Navire Léger) and the Thales Light Multirole Missile (LMM) (FASGW (Light)).

Both will be integrated onto the AW159 Wildcat to give it the ability to attack a wide range of surface targets. The company is manufacturing 62 Wildcat helicopters for the UK MoD, 28 of which will be operated by the Royal Navy and 34 by the British Army. The Wildcat is replacing the Lynx helicopter.

This contract is yet another confirmation of the long and successful working partnership between Finmeccanica - AgustaWestland and the UK Ministry of Defence. The Company has been providing helicopters for the Armed Forces for decades, together with a wide range of comprehensive training and support services.
