SAUDI ARABIA MH-60R SEA HAWK HELICOPTER ORDER CONFIRMED
Friday, August 28, 2015

Source: Lockheed Martin

NEWTOWN, Conn. - The United States Department of Defense (DoD) announced on August 27 that it had awarded a $11.8 million contract to Science Applications International Corp for the delivery of "weapon systems support and sustainment" for Sikorsky MH-60R and MH-60S helicopters operated by Brazil, Denmark, Saudi Arabia and the United States.

Saudi Arabia does not currently operate the MH-60R, but the U.S. Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA) announced on May 20 of this year that the State Department had approved the possible sale of 10 MH-60R multi-mission helicopters and associated equipment and services. The request, according to the Pentagon's Defense Services Cooperation Agency, has a total estimated cost of $1.9 billion.

The Royal Saudi Naval Forces MH-60R order succeeds a 2010 order of six AS 565MB Panthers from Eurocopter. These replaced the Navy's SA 365F Dauphin IIs which were mostly used in the anti-submarine warfare role with a few used for search-and-rescue operations.
