Agusta A.106

agusta-106



Flown in prototype form early in November 1965, the Agusta A.106 is a small lightweight armed helicopter designed initially in an antisubmarine role. The single-seater had a Turbomeca-Agusta TAA-230 turbine behind the cockpit, and the 2-blade main rotor, and the tail section including the 2-blade tail rotor, can be folded for stowage on board ship. With a standard skid landing gear, an auxiliary fuel tank may be carried externally. Systems included an autostabilizing device, an acoustic submarine detector and armament of two Mk.44 torpedoes. The Ferranti company developed an electronic three-axis stability augmentation system for the A 106, providing a stable firing platform and damping out external disturbances. The Italian Navy ordered two prototypes and five production aircraft, but construction of the production aircraft was suspended in 1973.
