Yeah 1 Regt AAC moved to Yeovilton in 2014 from Gutersloh. Around the same time 9AAC disbanded I believe.

I asked the same question (albeit hellfire or it’s replacement) of the Colonel commanding the ARF. Quite simply had they done that the Apache E model purchase could have been lowered. We discussed the Kiowa/Apache teaming concept as that’s what we’ve started doing with WC (nothing new to Gz/Lynx teaming back in ‘91).

It was cost saving for the Army/AAC. Lost the liability of the SF Sp Sqn (657). The RAF with Puma force taking up that mantle. Manpower could then be reallocated to other units that held significant gaps.

There’s a lot of commonality between them. The AFCS computer is the same as the Mk1!!
