OWEGO (BNS): The US Navy received its 200th submarine-hunting MH-60R "Romeo" helicopter from Lockheed Martin following a patch signing with Helicopter Maritime Strike Squadron Seven-Two (HSM-72).

"As surface and submarine warfare becomes increasingly complex, the MH-60R's capabilities are unmatched in identifying, locating, tracking and prosecuting these threats," Dan Spoor, vice president of Aviation and Unmanned Systems for Lockheed Martin's Mission Systems and Training business said in the company news release.

Manufactured by Sikorsky Aircraft Corp and provided with advanced mission systems and sensors by Lockheed Martin, the MH-60R employs a modular design, which refers to the ability to modify weapon systems to match specific mission requirements.

The US Navy is projected to acquire 291 MH-60R helicopters. The Lockheed Martin-Sikorsky team has also delivered five of 24 aircraft to the Royal Australian Navy and began production for the Royal Danish Navy, which will acquire nine aircraft.
