The danish parliement has chosen the Sikorsky MH-60R Seahawk as the shipbased helicopter to replace the Westland Lynx

The updated AW-159 Lynx was the last candidate to be removed from the competition.


The current Lynx helicopters were recieved starting in 1980. First a batch of 8 Mk.80's and to raplace to that had crashed, the Naval Air Service recieved 2 Mk.87's in 1987, originally destined for Argentina.
All the helicopters recieved a new airframe and was upgraded to Super Lynx Mk.90B status 10-12 years ago

Quote:

Denmark expects to receive the first of the new helicopters in 2016, so the Navy can provide an even more effective action both nationally and internationally.
Quote:

Seahawk is purchased as a shelf. This means that the helicopter already in service in another NATO country. It is a good opportunity for collaboration with other users, for example in relation to logistics, training and future updates of the helicopter.

Smart move!

Now at least the will have a platform that will be constantly updated (even if they elect not upgrade as often) as a result of the numbers produced, and the deep pockets of the USN. Not to mention interoperability and spares availability.
