HSL-43 BATTLE CATS

Helicopter Anti-Submarine Squadron Light FORTY-THREE was established as the Navy's first operational LAMPS MK III squadron on 12 October 1984 at NAS North Island. The primary mission of HSL-43 is to provide fully mission capable detachments aboard cruisers, destroyers, and frigates assigned to the U.S. Pacific Fleet. These detachments are an integral part of the ship's weapon system, extending the ship's under-sea and anti-ship warfare capabilities beyond the horizon. Secondary missions of these detachments include search and rescue, medical evacuation, vertial replenishment and communications relay.
