Pakistan Navy





Del'd: 14 - 1974 to present





Order for 6 Sea King Mk45 (basically similar to the RN HAS.1) placed in Dec 1972. This order essentially introduced aviation operations to the Pakistan Navy, following the 1971 war with India. Delivered in two batches of 3 in Nov 1975 and Oct 1976, they operate primarily in the Anti-Submarine Warfare role with up to 4 Mk46 torpedos and at least 5 have been modified to take a pair of AM39 Exocet missiles for the Anti-Shipping role, following weapons trials in 1976 and 1977. By May 1995 a contract to add a dipping sonar system was nearing completion and conversions became known as the Mk45A, with the final aircraft completed in Sep 1996. The Sea King is mainly shore based but can operate from the Navy destroyers and larger frigates.
On May 2017, Pakistan navy acquired 7 former Royal Navy Sea King HC.4
