The Aérospatiale Gazelle is a French five-seat helicopter, commonly used for light transport, scouting and light attack duties. It was designed by Sud Aviation, later Aérospatiale, and manufactured in France and the United Kingdom through a joint production agreement with Westland Aircraft.
XW855 Westland WA.341 Gazelle HCC.4 is on display at RAF London.
In the UK, the Gazelle saw service with the Royal Navy, the RAF, and is still in service with the Army Air Corps.
It was announced in January 2022 that the rest of the British Army’s Gazelles will be phased out by March 2024 to be replaced by Airbus Helicopters H135.
