111 Kokutai
111 Kokutai (111 Squadron) is the aerial mine-sweeping squadron of the JMSDF. It reports directly to the Chokkatsu Butai (Naval Air Wing) at Yokusuka Naval Base. It was formed in mid 1960s with 2 KV-107/II-3 helicopters. Seven KV-107/IIA-3 helicopters were added between 1971-73. The unit then transitioned to 11 S-80M-1 (MH-53E) helicopters beginning in 1989. One S-80M-1 was lost in an accident. The unit is currently transitioning to 14 new EHI/Kawasaki MCH-101 Merlin helicopters. The unit is currently based at Iwakuni Naval Air Station (RJOI) but will move to Atsugi (RJTA) in the near future.
