The Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King (company designation S-61) is an American twin-engined anti-submarine warfare (ASW) helicopter designed and built by Sikorsky Aircraft. A landmark design, it was the world's first amphibious helicopter and one of the first ASW rotorcraft to use turboshaft engines.
For well over 25 years, the SH-3 Sea King has been the USN's primary anti-submarine helicopter until replaced by the SH-60 Sea Hawk in the early 1990s. Even today, many SH-3s have been converted into UH-3 utility helos, but even the days for those are numbered. The Sea King has been a huge success overseas being license built by Westlands in the UK, Agusta in Italy and Kawasaki in Japan. There are dozens of countries still flying the Sea King and its non-nautical Commando version and should be around for years to come.
