Aerospatiale SA-361 HCL


In 1972, an SA.360 Dauphin was modified as the SA.361 for the HCL program (Hélicoptère de Combat Léger).

Secret Projects

This version of the SA 360 was developed for so-called "hot and high" circumstances and was a more powerful variant with improved performance and a greater payload capability. The SA 361 was never series-produced, although some prototypes were built.

Prototypes of a military variant of the SA 361, the SA 361 H (equipped with up to eight HOT anti-tank missiles) were also built, but the type was likewise never series-produced.
