The Royal Navy Wasp. An Operational and Retirement History by Larry Jerram-Croft and Terry Martin
Regular price £25.00
The Wasp is a key part of the story of evolution in naval tactics. The Westland Wasp was the first helicopter whose design was specifically for use from the confined spaces on smaller warships like destroyers and frigates. It proved an immediate success in extending the range of a surface ship both in defence and offence, above and beneath the surface. Much loved by those who flew in them, it was reliable and versatile and taught valuable lessons about this new development in naval warfare.
