From 1967 onwards the Westland Wessex HAS Mk3 was used by the Royal Navy in the Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) role. Developed from the S-58, the HAS Mk3 received a more powerful version of the Napier Gazelle engine, a new radar system and a comprehensive flight control system. Due to the characteristic radome on top of the fuselage she was nicknamed "The Camel". The last successful deployment of the Wessex HAS Mk3 was during the Falklands War. In 1983 they were decommissioned. "Humphrey" of No. 737 NAS aboard HMS Antrim gained fame by sinking an Argentinian submarine.
