The project was publicly announced at the Paris Air Show. While the new design maintained a similar generator layout to the preceding AS , it was powered by two of the new and more powerful Turbomeca Makila turboshaft engines, which drove a four-bladed main rotor which made use of composite materials. A great level of attention was paid to making the new model better withstand damage. A more robust fuselage structure was adopted along with a new crashworthy undercarriage, the rotor blades are also able to withstand a level of battle damage, as are the other key mechanical systems across the rotorcraft. The Super Puma also demonstrated far superior flight stabilisation tendencies and was less reliant on automated corrective systems.
