The Commando Sea King is a variant of the Sea King family and it was initially produced as a private venture to respond to a need for a Utility Support Helicopter for export. The most significant change was the introduction of a fixed landing gear. A large number of these aircraft were delivered to the Middle East and later India. The Sea King HC Mk4 also serves with the Royal Navy to support amphibious operations.
