RCAF’s Cyclone helicopter undertakes third operational deployment with HMCS Regina
Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship (HMCS) Regina, accompanied by Naval Replenishment Unit Asterix and a CH-148 Cyclone helicopter, departed its homeport of Esquimalt today for a deployment to the Asia-Pacific and Middle East regions.
This is the third deployment for the Royal Canadian Air Force’s Cyclone helicopter fleet and its first with the Pacific Fleet. The first operationally-deployed Cyclone recently returned to Canada after participating in Operation Reassurance. HMCS Toronto, with an embarked Cyclone, replaced HMCS Ville de Quebec.
