H-3H Sea King is a multi-purpose helicopter.

The H-3H is a twin engine, all-weather helicopter. The SH-3H is used to detect, classify, track and destroy enemy submarines. It also provides logistic support and search and rescue capability. The UH-3H and VH-3 are configured for combat support roles

The first version of this workhorse helicopter was flown more than 20 years ago. The Sea King has been replaced by SH-60F Sea Hawk helicopters as an anti-submarine warfare helicopter. The transition took into the late 1990s. The Sea King was then converted to a search and rescue helicopter.
