The US Navy’s next generation submarine hunter and anti-surface warfare helicopter, the Sikorsky MH-60R Sea Hawk is one of the key attractions at the static display at the biennial IMDEX Asia presently underway.
The helicopter on display is embarked on the guided-missile destroyer USS William P Lawrence (DDG 110).
Following the completion of the show, the helicopter will join static displays at Singapore’s Changi Naval Base and multilateral exercises hosted by the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN).
The MH-60R ‘Romeo’ is the cornerstone of the Navy’s Helicopter Concept of Operations, with Anti-Submarine Warfare and Surface Warfare as its primary missions.
The helicopter’s secondary missions include Electromagnetic Warfare, Search and Rescue, Vertical Replenishment, Naval Surface Fire Support, logistics support, personnel transport, Medical Evacuation, and VHF/UHF/Link Communication Relay.
