Lockheed to modify three Seahawks for India
Lockheed Martin is to configure three Lot 14 production MH-60R Seahawk helicopters for eventual use by the Indian Navy, under an $18.1 million contract modification from US Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIR).
Work is expected to be completed by March 2022, the DoD announced on 28 July.
Lockheed Martin was awarded a $904.8 million contract from NAVAIR on 14 May to build 24 MH-60Rs. The Indian Navy will receive 21 of these under the FMS programme for ASW and other missions.
In June, Lockheed also received a contract to design bespoke hardware and software for the IN Seahawks.
