The Sikorsky SH-60/MH-60 Seahawk (or Sea Hawk) is a twin turbo shaft engine, multi-mission United States Navy helicopter based on the airframe of the United States Army/Air Force UH-60 Black Hawk. The SH-60 Seahawk is still being operated by the U.S. Navy.

The SH-60B variant of the Seahawk, a twin-engine helicopter, was the primary anti-submarine platform used by the U.S. Navy. SH-60B was also used for search and rescue, drug interdiction, anti-ship warfare, cargo lift, and special operations. The –B version of the Seahawk first flew on February 11, 1983.

The SH-60B, also a Light Airborne Multi-Purpose System (LAMPS Mk III), has a 20deg tractor-type canted tail rotor, a controllable stabilator, conventional fixed landing gear, emergency flotation, an external cargo hook, a rescue hoist, and bomb racks for carrying and launching external stores. In addition, it is equipped with a flight-rated auxiliary power unit, a sonobuoy-launch system, an anti-ice system, a fire-extinguishing system, an environmental control system, an automatic flight control system (AFCS), a single-point pressure refueling system, a helicopter in-flight refueling (HIFR) system, and the necessary avionics and instrumentation for instrument flight and mission accomplishment. The helicopter design is compatible with ships equipped with a recovery, assist, securing and traversing (RAST) system, and the main rotor blades and tail pylon can be folded for storage. In addition, the helicopter can operate on non-RAST equipped combatants and a variety of other naval ships. A total of 260 –B version were built.
