Transmission rated at 1,957 kW (2,625 shp). Internal fuel capacity 1,438 litres (380 US gallons; 316 Imp gallons), plus provision for carriage of two 291 litres (77.0 US gallon; 64.1 Imp gallon) external fuel tanks; total capacity 2,021 litres (534 US gallons; 445 Imp gallons). Accommodation


Two pilots, crew chief and gunner; up to eight troops in main cabin on energy-attenuating crashworthy seats. Can accommodate six litters when used for casualty evacuation. S stems


On board inert gas generating system (OBIGGS) reduces fire hazard in event of sustaining combat damage to fuel tanks. Hamilton Sundstrand APU. Primary DC generation by two 400 A, 28 V DC generators driven by the combining gearbox; AC power system of two 1,500 VA three-phase inverters; system accommodate load-shedding for emergency power. Ni-Cd battery, 25 Ah, able to power all essential systems for 20 minutes. Hydraulic system of two primary flight control systems (PC-1 and PC-2); pressure 207 bar (3,000 lb/sq in); systems power three main rotor actuators and one directional actuator of flight control system. One cylinder of each actuator powered by PC-1; other by PC-2. Both systems include transmissiondriven hydraulic pump, bootstrap (pressurised) reservoir, filter module, flight control actuators, integral stability and control augmentation system, oil cooler fan hydraulic motor and other components; PC-1 also includes rotor brake control unit.
