Possibly, a new Sea King squadron (No 444?) will be raised.
Z-9Ds are also coming. (Matter of weeks if not months).
So what is the total no of sea-kings now in PN. We bought 7 (3 added in service rest spares ) last year from UK and now these 10. And I think we had at least 6 already . That looks like a total of 23 but may be 18 will be in service given some maybe used as spares?

What is the difference between Z9c and Z9D variants?
the combat radius of the Z-9D naval helicopter is relatively large, reaching more than 220 kilometers with four YJ-9 anti-ship missiles mounted. Considering that the range of anti-ship missiles launched by missile boats in general is currently within 200 kilometers, such a large combat radius of the Z-9D can ensure that enemy missile ships are driven out of the range of their anti-ship missiles.

The Z-9D helicopter uses a detachable curved beam mount that can carry four YJ-9 small anti-ship missiles

What about torpedo capacity?

Are they better than already in service version of the helicopters??
The incoming Sea-kings have some advantages over the current PN ones (larger fuselage, maybe better sensors since they’re newer.)
But the Z9-D is much better, currently Pakistan has Z9EC, which can fire torpedoes but not missiles, the new one can fire AShMs and has other upgrades.
