During 2014-15, the number of Seahawk ‘Romeo’ helicopters accepted into service will grow to seven. The Romeo will contribute to the Navy’s anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare capabilities, replacing the Seahawk ‘Classic’ in service.

A through-life support contract with the Maritime Helicopter Support Company, a Lockheed Martin/Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation joint venture, will be administered via a United States Foreign Military Sales sustainment case.

The main focus in 2014-15 will be the establishment of in-country sustainment facilities and services to support the planned increase in Romeo rate of effort.
