Not quite. In the run-off to see what the new frame was, the winner was Blackhawk. When the RAF was told it could not have it (even looked at Wastelands building under licence), then the RAF was told that Merlin was in fact the winner. At this point, Chinook was mooted. Effectively, and quite understandably, the RAF was prepared to do a lot of horse trading to not get stuck with the Merlin.
