The Indian Navy is reportedly contemplating the procurement of 12 additional Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk helicopters. People familiar with the plans have told that this potential deal, estimated for finalization in 2026, would be executed through the U.S. government’s Foreign Military Sales (FMS) program, once approved by the Indian MoD.

The Indian Navy recently inducted its first squadron of MH-60R Seahawks, significantly enhancing its anti-submarine warfare (ASW) capabilities. These versatile helicopters are equipped with a formidable arsenal, including Hellfire missiles, MK-54 torpedoes, and precision-guided rockets. Additionally, they boast advanced multi-mode radars and night-vision systems, enabling effective operations in challenging environments.

The current contract, signed in February 2020 for Rs 15,157 crore ($2.13 billion), encompasses the procurement of 24 MH-60R helicopters. Six of these choppers have already been inducted, with the remaining 18 slated for delivery by the end of 2025.

The potential acquisition of 12 more Seahawks signifies the Indian Navy’s satisfaction with the platform’s capabilities. These helicopters offer a potent combination of firepower, advanced sensors, and operational flexibility, making them valuable assets for various maritime missions, including:

Anti-submarine warfare
Anti-surface warfare
Search and rescue
Maritime patrol
Special operations support
