Seahawk Lands In India


After several years of delays India cleared all the bureaucratic obstacles to finally obtain 24 American MH-60R Seahawk anti-submarine helicopters. These will cost about $109 million each, which includes accessories, spare parts, tech support and the cost of establishing maintenance facilities for a new type of helicopter.

Despite the higher cost India has found American military helicopters the best value for the money. In addition to newly ordered MH-60Rs India already has 15 CH-47F heavy transport helicopters on the way and some have recently began arriving. In addition 22 AH-64E helicopter gunships will begin arriving later in 2019.

The MH-60Rs will begin delivery in a year or so. The ability of the Americans to deliver quickly is another plus. The Americans take good care of their customers. Read More
