Notes

    * - The Sea Harrier T.60s are primarily for training purposes, but are fully combat capable and integrated into the same squadron as the FRS.51s.

    ** - IISS may be confused. These two dozen helicopters were identified as Chetak (SE 316 Alouette III) performing an ASW mission. In 2005, they appear to be double-counted as SE 316 and SA 319, which double-count appears to be rectified by 2009.

    				2000	2002	2005	2009
    Chetak	SE 316 Alouette III	26	25	26	6
    	SA 319 Alouette III 			25	25
    ASW in 2000, 2002
    UTL in 2005, 2009
