    These are anti-submarine helicopters to be carried by ships. 24 is a good number.

    Navy is also buying Dhruv mounted with anti-sub sensors. These can be used from coastal bases if not from ships.

    It is a pretty significant boost to anti-sub capabilities.

    Hope they give us the permission to manufacture this at a later stage. We can fulfil our requirements from within.

    Mostly the Kolkatha Class ( P15 A) ships and Future (P15 B) Ships, the Vishakapatinam Class

    may be the future P 17 A frigates too

    The RFP for this tender wanted helos with small dimensions so that even the older/smaller ships could carry it.
    The RFI sent for 123 is for larger sized NMRH in the 9-12.5 tonnes class. If that happens fast enough, and if AW101/S-92 is chosen then this would naturally be deputed to the older frigate/corvettes.
