True about the NH-90, but for most European airforces it will be ideal for both Naval and support use. Some of the partner nations in the project, including surprisingly France, have only placed small orders so far, but the eventual requirement is large, for the Navies, Air Forces and Armies of France, Germany, Italy, Spain and others.
S-92, not had a lot of luck in the military market so far, it's basically a civil design. It was in competition with the British/Italian EH-101 for a Japanese navy contract, but the S-92 has recently been eliminated.
In Europe so far, the NH-90 and EH-101 have won out in recent procurement programmes.
(The EH-101 is doing well, hopefully it should win the Royal Navy requirement of the Sea King HC.4 replacement, and the RAF SAR requirement. Both services will need additional Naval and support versions respectively to supplement their initial orders).
The older Lynx is getting major upgrades in UK service, for both the Army and Navy, including new engines/transmissions. The UK pulled out of NH-90 in 1987, plus RN and AAC Lynx's have had top up orders over the years, unlike most of the European nations, so the average age is not so great.
If you think the NH-90 has been a long time coming, what about the Tiger attack chopper!
(All to do with the end of the Cold War at an early stage of these programmes, rather than anything technical).
