MCH-101 Helicopter

MCH-101 Helicopter

We developed the MCH-101, a successor of the current MH-53E minesweeping/transport helicopter, by modifying the EH101, a utility helicopter developed and manufactured by AgustaWestland based in Italy and the United Kingdom, in order to meet needs specific to Japan. The MCH-101 will be used in the Maritime Self-Defense Force’s minesweeping/transport activities as well as transport support for Antarctic exploration.
