The Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone is a twin-engine, multi-role shipboard helicopter manufactured by the Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation for the Canadian Forces. A military variant of the Sikorsky S-92, the CH-148 is designed for shipboard operations and has replaced the venerable CH-124 Sea King, which has been in operation since the early 1960 to the early 2000s. The helicopter will be operated by the Canadian Forces Maritime Command and be used in ASW operations. The Canadian Forces operate seventy-eight Cyclone helicopters in the Fleet Air Arm.
