Sea King History and Variants
The Sea King helicopter was based on the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King, an American helicopter that first flew in 1959 and entered service with the US Navy in 1961. The Sikorsky Sea King was designed for anti-submarine warfare, but also performed other roles such as search and rescue, transport, amphibious assault and presidential transport. The Sikorsky Sea King was exported to several countries, including Canada, Japan, Spain and Iran. 
Westland Helicopters obtained a licence to build the Sikorsky Sea King in Britain in 1966. Westland modified the design to suit British requirements, such as replacing the original General Electric T58 engines with Rolls-Royce Gnome engines, installing British-made sonar and radar systems, and adding a fully computerised flight control system. The first Westland Sea King flew on 7 May 1969 and entered service with the Royal Navy as the Sea King HAS.1 (Helicopter Anti-Submarine Mark 1) in 1970.  
The Westland Sea King underwent several upgrades and modifications over the years, resulting in different variants for different roles and customers. Some of the main variants were:
Sea King HAS.2: An improved anti-submarine version with a more powerful Gnome H.1400-1T engine, a Ferranti ARI 5980/3 I-band search radar and a Plessey Type 2069 dipping sonar. It also had provision for carrying four torpedoes or four depth charges.  
Sea King HAS.5: A further improved anti-submarine version with a GEC-Marconi ARI 5985 search radar, a Plessey Type 2074 dipping sonar and an improved sonobuoy processing system. It also had increased fuel capacity and an inflight refuelling probe.  
Sea King HAS.6: The final anti-submarine version for the Royal Navy, with a Gnome H.1400-2 engine, a Thorn-EMI ARI 5955 search radar, a Plessey Type 2084 dipping sonar and an updated sonobuoy processing system. It also had improved avionics and electronic warfare systems.  
Sea King HC.4: A troop transport version for the Royal Navy Commando Helicopter Force, derived from the Sea King HAS.5. It had a strengthened airframe, a rear loading ramp, a folding tail rotor and rotor blades, and seating for up to 28 troops or 16 stretchers. It also had provision for carrying external loads such as jeeps or artillery pieces.  
Sea King AEW.2/ASaC.7: An airborne early warning version for the Royal Navy, derived from the Sea King HAS.2. It had a Thorn-EMI Searchwater radar in a large inflatable radome above the fuselage, and an operator station in the cabin. It also had an identification friend or foe (IFF) system and a datalink to transmit information to other aircraft or ships. The AEW.2 was later upgraded to the ASaC.7 (Airborne Surveillance and Control Mark 7) standard with improved radar and avionics systems.  
Sea King HAR.3/HAR.3A: A search and rescue version for the Royal Air Force, derived from the Sea King HC.4. It had a weather radar in a nose radome, a rescue hoist on the starboard side, and seating for up to 22 survivors or nine stretchers. It also had distinctive yellow paint scheme for visibility. The HAR.3A was an upgraded version with more powerful Gnome H.1400-2 engines and improved avionics systems. 
The Westland Sea King was also exported to several countries, including Belgium, Germany, India, Norway and Egypt. Some of these countries operated their own variants of the Sea King with different equipment and configurations.  061ffe29dd
