Good grief, I forgot I posted this, Sorry Stealthman! I think Jane's cycle their articles so I guess that's the reason that the links are no longer active? Here's another article: LINK.

 

As Robertone139 posted AW101's are good bet with Super Lynx being another candidate. Algeria took delivery of those a few years ago as part of a large order of helicopters bought from what was then Agusta-Westland: LINK. Algeria being the sort of country it is I doubt there will be many in-service shots of either the Kalaat Beni-Abbes or it's airgroup.

 

I still can't see the reason for buying an LPD, but, hey-ho the Egyptians have bought those two Mistrals that France was building for Russia.

 

Mike.
