Like the Series 200, the Series 300 used the CT-7 engines, but included a new five bladed main rotor head with BERP blades. It was also intended to include ACSR (Active Control Structural response) vibration control equipment, which had been successfully tested on a series 100 aircraft. The main intention was to submit the design as a response to requirement ASR 404 for a possible successor to the Puma and Wessex. In addition to which itt was also hoped that there would be a wide civil and military export market, the requirement did not materialise. Only the single prototype was built.
