Congrats mate. Hopefully we'll see ours and yours on exercise together at some point...

Here's the original DSCA request for Denmark's MH-60R's for a refresher...

Edit: I'll wonder if we'll see Eurocopter whinge and complain like they have down under when they've lost a contract?

Doubt it. Eurocopter withdrew the NH90 from the competition and replaced it with the AS565 Panther which they considered more suitable for Danish requirements. The Panther didn't make the shortlist (Seahawk and AW-159 Wildcat).

Stated reasons in no particular order for the selection of the Seahawk: low-risk, known-quantity, range, payload, supportability.

Danish modifications: deck harpoon, some comms, heavy machine gun, other.

Thetis class OPVs will have aviation facilities rebuilt at a cost of c. $16 million.

More details (in Danish) for buffs here:
