Topic: Canada to finally replace the aging Sea Kings.


After a thorough pre-qualification and bid evaluation process, the Government of Canada has selected the H92 proposed by Sikorsky as the winner of the Maritime Helicopter Project.

I say it's about time too. We've had the sea kings for over 60 years, and they were fixing them with duct tape!

This is Canada's new maritime helicopter: CH-148 Cyclone.

It's a maratime helicpoter...so torpedos and I think it has a C9 (Canadian M249) on the back. It's not an attack helicopter, it's utility and anti sub. The only problem with this thing is that we're not gettin git for another what? 10 years
