The United Stated Navy has recently accepted the very first MH-60R helicopter variant for Denmark from Lockheed Martin, in a ceremony on Tuesday. This ceremony took place in Owego, New York, at a Lockheed Martin facility. The MH-60R was manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft and is equipped with advanced mission sensors and systems from Lockheed Martin. Denmark revealed in 2012 that they would be acquiring a total of nine MH-60R aircraft in order to perform missions such as search and rescue, surveillance, anti-surface warfare, and anti-piracy. The MH-60R is deployed and operational as the main United States Navy anti-surface and anti-submarine warfare system for both littoral zones and Open Ocean.
