The History behind the Helicopter
S-70B-2 Seahawk is a twin-engine helicopter with many features designed
specifically for ship-borne operations. It’s the most advanced helicopter in
the Navy’s arsenal and is expected to be the cornerstone of the Royal Navy’s
fixed wing fleet for at least the next 20 years. Fitted with a foldable four
bladed main rotor and tail pylon (to enable the aircraft to be stowed in the
hangar of smaller ships), the Seahawk is a conventional helicopter. However, it
is an advanced anti-submarine “hunter/killer” with a high level of integration
of its tactical, navigation, communications and weapons systems. The Royal Australian
Navy operates 16 Seahawks. The Sikorsky Aircraft Division of United
Technologies Corporation in Florida, USA, manufactured the first batch of eight
aircraft. Aerospace technologies Australia (ASTA) at Avalon in Victoria
assembled a second batch of eight aircraft. The final aircraft was delivered to
the Royal Australian Navy in 1992. The S-70B-2 is powered by twin T700-GE-401C
turbine jet engines. To detect submarines, it’s equipped with radar, acoustic
processor and magnetic anomaly detector and can use a wide range of expendable
sonobuoys. The avionics system is built around a dual MIL-STD1553B data bus
controlled by two computers. Once detected and classified, submarine contacts
can be dealt with by launching Mark 46 torpedoes. In its role of ant-submarine
warfare, the aircrew employs the aircraft's acoustic system to simultaneously
monitor a number of sonobuoys, which are deployed from the aircraft in-flight.
In the aircraft's role of anti-surface warfare, the lightweight radar is
capable of automatically tracking contacts. The radar can detect targets at
ranges far beyond the coverage provided by surface ships in a task force, with
all information processed on board being capable of transmission in high-speed
bursts (via secure data-link) to the operations rooms of the Navy's FFGSs. The
aircraft's navigation suite, which integrates data from GPS, Doppler and
air-data computers, produces a constantly updated position which allows for
accurate targeting for a ship's Harpoon missiles. The aircraft is operated by a
crew of three –one pilot (the aircraft captain), one observer and one air
crewman. In addition to its primary warfare roles, the S-70B-2, with its
built-in winch and cargo hook, is also used extensively at sea to transfer
personnel and for the vertical replenishment of ships while they remain under
way. With minor modification, the aircraft is capable of being converted to a
troop-carrying role, lifting up to 10 troops at time. The Seahawk is expected
to be the mainstay of the Fleet Air Arm for at least the next 20 years.
1:72 scale Seahawks are big and come with a variety of transparent window
configurations on the left side. These modelsare heavy for 1:72 scale
die-castsbecause they feature more detail and armament compared to other
models. Two sets of rotor blades are included, one with drooping blades for
ground display and another with blades that are curved upwards for in-flight
display. Each helicopter comes with its own pedestal stand and is
serialized to show its place in the production run. Corgi's unique pedestal allows the helicopter to be displayed at several different angles including banking left and right, level, ascent, and descent. Each helicopter also comes with removable landing gear for static display.
