The Chinook is described by the RAF as an extremely capable and highly versatile support helicopter that can be operated from land bases or seaborne vessels into a range of diverse environments, from the Arctic to the desert or jungle.

The aircraft may be heavily armed and is fitted with a suite of self-defence equipment allowing it to operate across highly contested battlespace.

Chinooks are primarily used for trooping, resupply and battlefield casualty evacuation, but the crews are trained to accomplish these tasks under threat from both ground and air based enemies.
