Westland Wasp

The Westland Wasp was a British small first-generation gas-turbine powered shipboard anti-submarine helicopter. Produced by Westland Helicopters it came from the same P.531 programme as the British Army Westland Scout and was based on the earlier piston-engined Saunders-Roe Skeeter. It fulfilled the requirement of the Royal Navy for a helicopter small enough to land on the deck of a frigate and carry a useful load of two homing torpedoes.
