Dubbed the CH-148 Cyclone, the first deliveries are scheduled for 2008.
Canada is the first military customer for the H92, Sikorsky may have
work cut out for them in meeting the 2008 delivery date.

helicopter is not expected to be delivered until the end of 2010 at
this time, with the entire fleet not operational until 2013.
