Denmark Selects U.S. Navy's MH-60R Seahawk Helicopter

Aircraft Configured For Anti-Surface Warfare Operations

The U.S. Navy announced last week that the Danish government has signed an official letter of offer and acceptance formalizing its intent to buy nine MH-60R Seahawk helicopters and comprehensive logistics support for its Maritime Helicopter Replacement Program. Valued at US $686 million (Kr 4 billion), the aircraft will be procured via the U.S. government's Foreign Military Sales program.

"It's great news that the Danish government has selected the U.S. Navy's MH-60R, an aircraft we believe is the world's most capable multi-mission maritime helicopter," said Rear Adm. Paul Grosklags, Program Executive Officer, Air, ASW, Assault and Special Mission Programs. "Danish pilots and crew will be able to fly with the confidence that these aircraft have been proven operationally capable at sea and have the full logistics support already in place to ensure they are ready and able to fly anytime, anywhere in the world."

Denmark is the second country to buy MH-60R helicopters following Australia's purchase of 24 aircraft in 2011. All nine aircraft will be delivered to the Danish government by 2018. The Danish aircraft are configured for anti-surface warfare operations, including defending Danish interests in the North Atlantic, executing anti-piracy operations, and conducting other missions during international deployments. 

The U.S. Navy was supported in its winning proposal by Team Seahawk, consisting of MH-60R airframe manufacturer Sikorsky Aircraft, mission systems integrator Lockheed Martin, engine manufacturer GE, sensor supplier Raytheon Corp., and training supplier CAE.
