Helicopters

The RAF has a commitment to support the British Army and our NATO allies in the field. The helicopter forces have a number of tasks in this role, largely that of transport of supplies and equipment to forward operating bases. Aside from this major task, the RAF helicopter forces also evacuate casualties, and operate in support of UN peacekeeping forces worldwide.
