Comparison of the Sikorsky SH-3 Sea King Ship-based Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) Helicopter and the Sikorsky CH-148 Cyclone Maritime Multirole Helicopter.

OVERVIEW



Your comparison results are showcased below. Reported values with a number '0' appearing in fields reflect that the value is not available (NA) in our database (this can prove the case with some X-plane / developmental designs). Rotary-wing (that is, Helicopter) systems have their 'width' based on the overall main rotor diameter. UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) entries may display their crew value as the number '0', not taking into account their ground-based pilots.

Remember you can always Compare another two aircraft.

Relative Size Comparison
NOTES: Shapes below depict aircraft from wingtip-to-wingtip / nose-to-tail assuming aircraft are being viewed from overhead perspective (the nose pointing towards the top of your screen). Helicopter widths include main rotor diameter. If any dimensional values are "NA" in our database then the presented shapes will appear skewed.
