The Sikorsky Sea King is the workhorse of many air forces and navies around the world. Since it’s introduction in 1961 many have been built under licence in Italy, Japan, and the UK as well the long production run in the USA.
The Sea King was primarily designed for Anti-Submarine Warfare, but several variations have appeared over the years including search-and-rescue, transport, airborne radar, anti-shipping and troop transport.
The Sea King ASW has a crew of four and is armed with torpedoes, depth charges and various sonobuoys and pyrotechnics.
This example is a Westland Sea King HAR.3A of 22 Squadron RAF 2011.
