  • Fleet Air Arm (RAN) MH-60R Seahawk

On June 16, 2011 was announced Australia signed a Letter of Acceptance (a formal agreement with the US Navy) for the purchase of 24 MH-60R Seahawks with first expected deliveries by 2014. Australia is already a S-70B Seahawk user since 1989.

Lockheed-Martin completed first Australian cockpit in February 2013 and the first 2 aircraft were delivered on December.

On October 2014, the first MH-60R arrived to Australia after almost a year of training at NAS Jacksonville, Florida.

On September 2016, the 24th, and final, was delivered in a ceremony held at RANAS Nowra.
