Lockheed Martin delivers choppers to Australia

Owego, New York based Lockheed Martin presented the Royal Australian Navy with two locally-made helicopters Tuesday. It's the first international sale of its kind.  Lockheed will help create two dozen more of these MH-60 choppers for “the land down under”. The choppers were manufactured by Sikorsky aircraft and have advanced mission systems and sensors by Lockheed Martin. Officials say the technology built into these helicopters will give the Royal Australian Navy the upper hand over submarines, a big advantage in maritime security.
