HS-11 Dragonslayers

HS-11 conducts Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) in the SH-60F. The helicopter uses an Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) to enable it to fly an automatic approach to a hover day or night and in all weather. Once in a hover, dipping sonar is used to actively search, detect and track submarines. In addition to its sonar, the SH-60F can carry active and passive sonobuoys. To attack a submerged target, the SH-60 can carry torpedoes and can launch them in flight or from a hover. 

This helicopter is one of many Naval assets that conduct ASW. Due to the dipping sonar and superior crew training, the SH-60F is the vehicle of choice to successfully detect and destroy enemy submarines.
