Sikorsky Aircraft has signed a
memorandum of understanding with the Government of Turkey for 12
new S-70B SEAHAWK helicopters plus an option for five additional
helicopters. First deliveries are scheduled to begin in 2008.
Sikorsky previously delivered eight S-70B SEAHAWK helicopters to
Turkey and its Land Forces also operate more than 100 S-70A BLACK
"We are delighted that Turkey has selected the SEAHAWK for this
vital mission," said Joseph Gigantelli, Sikorsky Regional Vice
President of Worldwide Sales. "The SEAHAWK is the most modern and
capable anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and anti-surface unit warfare
(ASuW) helicopter in the world."
The S-70B helicopter is an international derivative of the U.S.
Navy SH-60B SEAHAWK. The S-70B has a fully integrated glass cockpit
with smart multifunction liquid crystal displays and a mission
management system. Its flexible mission package includes dipping
sonar, ESM, FLIR, multi-mode radar, ASE, and Penguin and Hellfire
missiles. Multi-mission capable, the S-70B can perform Search and
Rescue (SAR), Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC), surveillance, Vertical
Replenishment (VERTREP), and utility missions.
Other international SEAHAWK customers include Australia, Greece,
Japan, Spain and Thailand. Sikorsky is also under contract to
deliver six S-70B SEAHAWK helicopters to Singapore beginning in
