The Agusta-Bell 204 was a version made in Italy from the popular Bell 204B, which reached universal fame during the Vietnam conflict. The Spanish Navy received four copies in the middle of 1965, to constitute the first truly operational squadron: the 3rd Squadron. It was an authentic helicopter for antisubmarine warfare, and was equipped with an automatic stabilization system, an Ekco surface detection radar, sonar and armament consisting of Mk.44 torpedoes or AS.11 and AS.12 missiles. They were replaced from 1974 by Agusta AB-212, although both models coexisted during some time developing secondary missions, like the close support and transport of Marine Corps.
