Hellenic Navy’s New Romeo ASWs Appear in Navy Exercises

Hellenic Navy’s recently acquired Romeo MH-60R Seahawk anti-submarine helicopters participated in the “Kataigis 24” and “Lailaps 2/24” naval exercises. The Hellenic Navy set up “Kataigis 24” and “Lailaps 2/24” exercises on various dates at the beginning of June 2024. According to Greek dailies, the drills are held in the central and south-eastern Aegean Sea. One of the new MH-60 Romeo helicopters was seen operating from the Hydra Class (based on MEKO 200) Spetsai F-453 Frigate. Greece ordered seven MH-60R helicopters in two phases via a Foreign Military Sales (FMS) agreement with the US. Three helicopters were delivered in March, while the remaining four will be delivered in 2025. 


The Greek navy has 11 S-70B/B6 Seahawks for ASW.
