Britain said that the Ukrainian military will control the WS-61 Sea King helicopters transferred to Ukraine

The “newly minted” British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak, as expected, continued the policy of his predecessors towards Kyiv. It is no secret that the UK is one of the main beneficiaries of the conflict in Ukraine and is interested in its continuation.


On November 19, the British Prime Minister visited Kyiv, where he met with Volodymyr Zelensky. During the conversation, Sunak stressed that the UK has been a key partner of Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian NMD and promised to continue military support for the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In particular, to allocate 50 million pounds to strengthen Ukraine's air defense.

At the same time, as it became known, London is preparing to transfer 3 Sea King helicopters and 10 artillery shells to Kyiv.

It is worth noting that the aforementioned rotorcraft were written off by the British in 2018. We are talking about the WS-61 Sea King, which is a British version of the American transport aircraft from Sikorsky, developed back in the late 60s of the last century. For Ukraine, according to London, it is quite an acceptable option. According to some reports, one of the three cars has already arrived in Ukraine.

About who will pilot them, first, although such a question was asked by British journalists of the Deputy Minister of Defense of the United Kingdom. Then it was announced that the helicopters would be operated by the Ukrainian military, who were allegedly trained in the UK.

    This is the beginning of the transfer of aviation equipment.
    helicopters will be operated by the Ukrainian military.......

    Naturally, the British will not fly decommissioned helicopters. The main thing is that the equipment for emergency evacuation of the crew from the helicopter should work flawlessly.
    England back in 1982 used helicopters in the Falklands War

        APASUS .... What kind of equipment is this on Sea King, shine?

        Amphibious helicopter, can land and take off from the water. Equipment - a simple rubber boat with oars.

          Are you seriously ? I once saw an emergency landing of a helicopter, you might not have time to get the boat, let alone inflate and deflate

          All three in anti-submarine design, most likely will be handed over along with torpedoes.

            Rather, RCC Brimston-2.
            They are also going to be delivered in the near future.
            This is, as it were, a high-power anti-tank missile of the "fire-and-forget" type. But it also applies to ships.

              But what about the laser illumination for hitting the target, it didn’t fire and forgot, however, for the pilot, yes.

                Brimston has an active radar in the seeker and an inertial at long ranges, plus laser illumination as an option at close range.

          Yes, the front of possible use is wide. This is also against the Kinsburskaya Spit, the Crimea, if the Angles leave the equipment to search for submarines, then the fight against our submarines ...

            And you don’t need to leave anything, as they say in the cart, Klimov seems to be the Black Sea for NATO at a glance, right down to the depths of the use of diesel-electric submarines.

      Today helicopters, and tomorrow fighters and bombers. If it goes like this, then it will come to atomic weapons. Or maybe an aircraft carrier will be presented to Ukraine.

        MIGs and MI were already supplied from stocks that were in Europe. What decommissioned Western-style turntables supply is only a continuation, not a beginning.

    Great Britain is one of the most vulnerable countries in Europe, the gas pipeline from Norway pumps 80% of the gas, a small diversion and England join Ukraine in the Middle Ages. The weakness of our government allows our rivals to become more and more impudent.

        The Coast Guard took sick and injured sailors on such helicopters when every hour counted. Here, for example, is the Spanish Maritime Safety Department from Wiki.
        The flight is not free, under the USSR, the MRKh or MMF was paid in foreign currency, under Russia the owner of the ship.
