The S-70B-2 Seahawk is a twin-engine helicopter with many features designed specifically for ship-borne operations. Fitted with a foldable four bladed main rotor and tail rotor pylon (to enable the aircraft to be stowed in the hanger aboard a frigate), the Seahawk is a conventional helicopter. However, it is an advanced anti-submarine warfare craft with a high level of integration of its tactical, navigation, communications and weapons systems. The RAN operates 16 Seahawks. The Sikorsky Aircraft Division of United Technologies Corporation in Florida, USA, manufactured the first batch of eight aircraft. Aerospace Technologies Australia (ASTA) at Avalon in Victoria assembled a second batch of eight aircraft. The final aircraft was delivered to the RAN in 1992.
