The Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone is a twin-engine, multi-role shipboard helicopter developed for the Canadian Forces.  It is a military variant of the Sikorsky S-92 and is designed for shipboard operations, replacing the venerable CH-124 Sea King, which has been in operation since 1963. The Cyclone is operational with the RCAF and will conduct anti-submarine warfare (ASW), surveillance, and search and rescue missions from RCN warships.  The Cyclone will also provide tactical transport for operations supporting national and international security efforts.
