The Brazilian Navy has awarded a contract to Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation to deliver four S-70B anti-submarine warfare / anti-surface warfare helicopters.

Under the $163.8m contract, the company will supply SH-3A/B Sea King helicopters as well as associated modifications, production and transportation.

These SH-3A/B Sea Kings will accompany the navy’s AH-11 Super Lynx models and will replace the aging Sea King helicopters.

The design of the Seahawk is derived from the US Navy’s new MH-60R but includes enhanced features in terms of electromechanical and drivetrain changes.
