The Trump administration has approved the possible sale of 24 Sikorsky MH-60R multi-mission helicopters to India, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said in a release.

In a quick reply to an Indian request submitted late last year, the State Department said it was informing the U.S. Congress as legally required that it was giving the green light for India to buy the 24 helicopters worth a total of $2.4 billion.

Nicknamed the Romeo, the MH-60R Seahawk multi-role helicopters manufactured by Lockheed Martin subsidiary Sikorsky are designed for hunting submarines as well as knocking out ships and conducting search-and-rescue operations at sea.
