Martlet-toting AW159 on trials at Yeovil via Tom Jones Twitter Page...

We talked about this one before.  It's carrying missiles that are sized right between the 2.75 and 5in rockets.  It's carrying a total of 20 of these bad boys.  If these are precision weapons then JUST MAYBE its something that the AH-1Z should be looking to add to it's arsenal.

Those wings are pretty funky looking though.  Could an AH-1Z carry as many? Eyeballing it I can't be sure.  Could using these to make the UH-1Y into a surrogate gunship work?  Depending on how they're attached could this be the system that the MV-22 is searching for?
