  • The Indian Navy will commission the recently inducted MH60R Seahawk (a marine version of the Black Hawk helicopter) multi-role helicopter on 06 March 2024 at INS Garuda, Kochi, marking a pivotal moment in India's defence modernisation journey. The Seahawks Squadron will be inducted into the Indian Navy as INAS 334. These helicopters are a part of the 24-aircraft FMS contract signed with the US in February 2020.
  • With the induction of Seahawks, the Indian Navy is poised to experience a significant increase in its maritime strength. The helicopter is designed for Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW), Surface Conflict (ASUW), Search and Rescue (SAR), Medical and Evacuation (Medivac) and Vertical Replenishment (Vertrap). The helicopter has been rigorously tested in Indian Reference Environment (IRA) conditions and is being fully integrated into the fleet. Advanced weaponry, sensors and avionics suite make the Seahawk helicopter critical to the maritime security requirements of the Indian Navy, providing advanced capabilities to deal with both conventional and unconventional threats.
