My COD is bigger than your COD!The COD role these beasts will have is to the USN CVN fleet.
The US LHA fleet uses the MH-60S-nowdays 3 per detachment, and likewise the RN CVF is likely to use the Merlin in that role. The present exercise in the North Sea with QE II has seen the Merlins make shore runs to Cranwell, Northolt and Wattisham.
Next year's CVF cruise may just get 2 or 3 USN MH-60S for that role as well.
